    My followers on twitter are getting this direct message from "me"

    "somebody wrote something about you in this blog here xxx"

    How is that possible if I am not sending any message to anyone and I don't even know that site.  Who and why is doing that?

      Someone got a hold of your user name and password.  Did you respond to one of these DM's?   
       

      Log into Twitter and change your password immediatly.

      The DM is the cause it has been happening on Twitter for months.

    Someone knows your password. Change it NOW Anath before they get your friends passwords too.

    1. Change the email address you use to log in with.

    2. Change the password you use to log in with.

    3. Change your regular email address's password.

    Someone, obviously, got hold of your log in information. Since you're not sure HOW they got hold of your log in information, you need to change everything that is connected to your Twitter account. They could have used a phishing program or hacked into it. And you never really know what other passwords of yours they may have, which is why you should change the password to your regular email address too.

      Thanks for your help.

      Is there any way I can warn my Twitter followers not to open the link if they get it.  I mean, without sending individual messages which would take me all night.

        You could always put it in your Twitter feed. Say: Do not click any of the links in your direct mail that were sent within the last certain number of hours as it was not me who sent them.

    Looks like your twitter got hacked. Other than that are you using any software to tweet ? or service to which you allowed authorization to twitter account ? or may be disquss type community comments where you logged in with twitter ? If your password got compromised from such services then it's hard to tell, in any case change the password and email id in settings.


    Edit: You can login with new pass and send message to all that not to click on your earlier tweet links.

      Send a tweet @yourfollower which sent you the DM they might not be aware of the problem.

    Off the topic of tainted DM's but staying with twitter.

    I published a hub about one hour ago.  The hub does not pull up on google yet but the tweet is ranked second on the page.

    Google loves Twitter.
