    We have made more great articles like what is Twitter?, Twitter explained and information and also how to become more succesful on Twitter!

     

    What NOT to do?

    All these messages are followed with a link address that runs to a website, which will steal your login information. What ever you do, NEVER click on the attached link. If you do, also your login information will be in the hands of those spammers: your account is hacked. From this moment, you will also start sending those strange, unusual DM's to all off those who follow you. These messages will be sent without your knowledge.

     

    How to take control of your Twitter account?

    This requires three simple steps:

    A) Have a look which applications are using your Twitter account, follow below:

  • click on the Twitter settings symbol, on top of your screen on the right side after you have logged in at Twitter
  • click on 'Apps', do you see any services you do not reconize?
  • be a 100% sure that this application is unwanted, then rewoke access
  •  

    Now going fast to the second very important step.
    B) change your password, via:

  • click on the Twitter settings symbol, because you are still logged in
  • click on 'password' and change this in totally something else
  •  

    C) now you have full control of your Twitter account, it's time for ...

    Send an apologize message that you account was hacked and you have been sending unaware spam tweets. Mention that you have 100% control of your Twitter account again.

    Happy tweeting!

     

    As final tip: never use services like fllwrs.com and/or TrueTwit. Your followers it will be very pleased in not receiving any messages from third parties!

     

    BTW there is also a hoax that's being spread on Twitter: "Hey i heard twitter will start to charge in June, sign this petition to keep the service free!" or like "Twitter is going to charge? see this article :(. Off cource this is NOT true! This hoax was first seen on Huyves and Facebook and now founds a way on Twitter too.
