I'm posting this in the "Report a Problem" area because it could pose a problem for fellow hubbers. I first noticed something strange two days ago. I got a direct Twitter message from a fellow hubber that I don't normally talk to. It was a message asking me if this was me and provided a link. I clicked on the link and nothing happened. I really didn't think about it any further.
Then I got a direct message from another hubber asking me to take an IQ test. This is uncharacteristic for this hubber so I didn't click on it at all.
Today I got a direct message from another hubber and this one mentioned a message I sent them where I asked them to look at a photo. I haven't sent any Twitter messages. This one had me worried.
I logged into my Twitter account and it shows I sent tons of messages 20 hrs ago. Those weren't me. I have deleted my account but it says it can take 24 hours before it is truly deleted. If you get any Twitter messages from KCC Big Country, delete them. It's not me.
The only thing I've done with Twitter is vote in the Mashable's thing to vote for HubPages. I'm wondering if that's how it got hacked.
Anyone else having problems?
I got something similar from RooBee's Twitter, asking me to click something that caused all sorts of McAfee alerts to pop up.
That's the one. I don't blame RooBee...she's as much a victim as I am. I've deleted my account, not much more I can do. I don't like Twitter anyway.
Oh man the internet is so much fun some days. I've stopped using twitter, facebook and so much other stuff lately. It just seemed to be way too much, over the top and rife with trouble. I've decided to make money quietly, if at all possible.
ooo I haate hackers I really do. They need to get lives and leave ppl alone. Sorry you went through all that KCC!
I find it helpful to promote my articles and find some other interesting links.
Yeah, I've been receiving all kinds of things from RooBee and KCC at Twitter -- but no harm done. I simply deleted my Twitter account, which I never used anyway. So I'm actually grateful for the opportunity to get rid of something I wasn't using anyway. . .
I had a similar problem a couple of months ago.Someone updating some teeth whitening rubbish on my twitter account. Tons of them and other stuff i know absolutely nothing about. And adding salt to the wound, Twitter suspended me for ..can you believe it? SPAMMING.
I complained bitterly to them thru some link of complaints on twitter. They didn't even have the courtesy to reply me, or, attend to me up till this minute. I never liked them anyway so i just ignored the issue after my unsuccessful complaints attempts.
For me, it was -good riddance to bad rubbish- anyway

Yesterday I found my twitter account had postings/tweets that I did not place. I deleted them but am keeping a keen eye on this. What should I do IF this continues?

Other than getting hacked, what make your Twitter account autofollow hundreds of people?I didn't follow them, and now my entire Twitter feed posts are in another language, even. Second question: How do I stop it? So far my account is following more than 700 people I never added.

Hi, I have just checked Amazon.com for payment details. It seems that you can get paid direct to your bank if you are in USA or get paid by Amazon.com gift certificate. If you want to be paid by cheque, earnings have to be $100. How can I get paid in UK? I can't have the...

For those who write on HubPages, do you also have Twitter accounts?Twitter is supposed to be great for announcing you've written a new hub and to get more followers. Do you use Twitter for these objectives too? What kind of feedback do you get?
