Have you noticed suspicious activity on your Twitter account? Have your followers been receiving direct messages that you didn’t send? If so, your account may have been compromised or hijacked.
If your account has been hijacked, the first thing you should do is change your password. You will need to update this new password on any third-party applications you use. It’s a good idea to change your password monthly to avoid these sticky situations.
The next thing to check for is the authorized apps. You will find this under settings in the drop down menu on the right hand side of the screen. You will find a tab for “apps”. Look for apps that you didn’t authorize and revoke access. To revoke access you simply click on the revoke access button.
A couple other points to mention, while I’m on the subject. Twitter NEVER sends out emails with attachments and will NEVER request your password. Don’t open these attachments or send your password. Twitter will normally contact you through your account if there is a problem.
See you online!
