The Day my Twitter account was Hacked
I had always thought that it did not happen to me.
The last days I got some DMs from people that had been following me that they got odd DMs from me, asking them to visit a webpage where you can learn about your IQ or where you can find photos of female students. Instead of checking my SENT box I simply thought: “Could not be me, I haven’t sent those DMs”. Instead of taking the hints of my followers for what they were – serious hints that I should take some action – I thought they were wrong, because what could not be could not be.
I got a message from a virtual friend today who told me again that my twitter account was hacked. I opened my SENT box and I went red for shame – Since a few days my twitter account has been used for sending out the most odd DMs to people all around the world!
Of course I changed the password as soon as possible. And I very much hope that things like these won’t happen again. Yes, I know, this won’t be the last scamming attack on Twitter. I won’t be able to prevent further attacks. But I know for sure: I will take action as soon as the first follower will tell me!
So all of you who got those ugly DMs: I can only say sorry if you got more than one from my Twitter account and I hope you are still following me.
