Twitter Account Hacked?

If you are finding repeated direct messages being sent from a twitter account, don’t blame the owner of the account.  They are not actually sending you these messages.  Rather, their twitter account has been hacked and the rouge app is generating them.  These messages include the list at the bottom of this page. For example, “some person is posting horrible rumors about you.”

Do NOT open the links that are sent with the direct message, as this can cause your own account to get hacked.  Instead, politely inform the sender that they need to fix their account.

Fixing your Twitter Account

If your account has been sending messages like these, but have no idea how it is happening, the simple truth is that your account has been hacked.  Someone has gotten a hold of your password, and has activated an application on your Twitter account.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to your Twitter account.  Change your password.
  2. Go to the Settings – Apps.  Review the apps that are allowed to use your account.  If you see one you do not recognize, press “Revoke Access”.

It’s relatively quick and painless.
