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.
Unfortunately it does sound as though you have been hacked. Either that, you you have recently given a site access to your twitter account and this is something that they do (one that asks you to 'sign in with Twitter').
You could try reporting this, check your authorized sites page in 'settings-apps', or just unfollow those 700 odd people. I would recommend the first two, as otherwise this could continue to happen. Also, it may be worth changing your password too.
In addition to Brett's excellent advice, it's possible that you subscribed inadvertently to a service that auto-follows users. See http://www.ismaconnects.org/2011/12/how … followers/ for more details and follow Brett's advice on the settings-apps page.
Check everything you have given permission to post or use some script on your Twitter account. Remove permission from anything and everything. See if that fixes the problem. It wouldn't hurt to change your password too.
Login to Twitter then go into Settings and then Apps. Read down the list and revoke access to all of them. Keep nothing you aren't 100% sure is safe. If you have any uncertainty about one of those applications, delete it. You can always give them permission again later.
Thank you, guys! I got up this morning and found 200 more people I was following. I have revoked every ap, changed my password, and am manually deleting all these 13-19 y.o. Brazilian vampires, satanists, models, actors, radio stations and DJs that I somehow got wrapped into, but I still have no idea how I got wrapped into them!
The only thing I can think of is that I recently reviewed SocialOomph for an article I wrote, which was mentioned on the link Matt Phillips provided, but it wasn't in my list of aps to revoke. Shrug?

Too bad for Spanky! He likes to broadcast his lying BS on Twitter, but for some strange reason he dislikes opposing views to be seen on his account. "Surprise, Surprise," as Gomer Pyle was wont to say....

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...

Is there any way to embed your Twitter account directly into one of your Hubs?In other words, is there a way to gain followers on Twitter through an embedded plugin within a Hub?

My Twitter account is @JohnnyF89 Thought I'd ask because I've noticed many published hubs that recommend the use of Twitter to help you with Hubpages.

I'm toying with the idea, and I was wondering if it would help me reach a bigger audience. Do any of you have Twitter accounts for your Hubpages account? Has it helped you?Thank you!

Do you have a Twitter account?If so, what do you use for? I have had a Twitter account for over 3 years but haven't found any practical professional or personal use for my Twitter.
