Yesterday, Twitter sent me a message about my account saying it might have been “hacked.” It was hacked! And it was hacked by someone who sent nasty-mean messages to all my followers. One of my followers sent me a message saying she had received a rude message, and that I might want to change my password (she could tell it wasn’t me!). This whole experience upset me. I’ve never been hacked before. I hated seeing my picture next to a nasty or mean message. I sent a message to all my followers apologizing and explaining the situation. My Twitter account seems to be stable now, so I will move forward with using this communication medium–but with great caution. AND–I have received messages from others saying their accounts have also been hacked–so this is a social media we must monitor regularly.
