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 knows your password. Change it NOW Anath before they get your friends passwords too.
Please delete the link as this could be the cause of your problems.
WARNING do not click on OP's LINK
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.
I got the same email this morning & the same message posted on my twitter about 10 times.
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.
I have received a few of those emails too
thankfully I had seen this thread earlier in the day so I didn't click on the link.
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.

Hello. I've been researching Twitter recently but a lot of the information I've found seems to be dated several years ago already so I'd like to ask for some recent information. Is Twitter still a good site for backlinks and traffic? Is it really effective? Does it work?How many times a day should...

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.

Why is there no longer an option to share Hubs on Twitter? It looks like it's been replaced with Flipboard, which seems like a weird choice.

I joined up with Hubpages a week ago, originally just to build links to a website I started 2 months ago. Now I'm enjoying Hubpages and the freedom to write about other topics that interest me and have adsense and amazon earnings as well.As for promoting websites, I haven't used Facebook or Twitter...

Just started a Twitter account. I have one follower and really, it's quite pathetic! I found the lovely blondepoet there and am now following her but wondered if any other fellow hubbers would like to share their Twitter identity so that I can follow them as well.Tweeting is quite new to me and I...
