Twitter Violation

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.
