    I wasn’t hacked, but I was counterfeited…took about 3 weeks to get the counterfeiter removed.

      That wouldn’t have been fun!

    I have never been hacked and I hope I will never be. I have absolutely no idea what I would do if I were, though I suppose I would get down to finding out and doing it on a war footing.

      Looks like you were victim to a phishing attack.

    “Biased American news channel Fox”? That may be correct, but so are all of the other major news channels. Actually, I call them Opinions rather than News.

  • Stephen Box

    Hey Jeff…check your facts! The only people that say FOX is (always) biased are left-wing radicals. MSNBC actually wins the award for the most egregious and ongoing bias (see Pinocchio Awards at the Washington Post) and, btw, amongst cable news channels FOX has millions more viewers than their next closest rival. Even the venerable CBS was recently caught spinning stories and doing selective editing on audio, e.g., the Trevon Martin/George Zimmerman case. Love the blog, emails, tweets, and the info on your site…was a tad surprised by this comment, though. Cheers!

    Didn’t get hacked either but we got suspended by mistake for a few days. Wasn’t fun!

    Have a great weekend! :)

    Just happened to me. I wouldn’t have known if one of my followers hadn’t sent me a direct message. I’m not sure what the point of it was – whoever went in sent a direct message to many of my followers saying there was a funny picture of them and a link. I didn’t click on the link so I’m not sure what was there. The biggest hassle is that I couldn’t send any direct messages as my account had exceeded the number of direct messages that could be sent out. All I could do was report it and change my password.

    I have a problem with someone who is using my exact name on Twitter and the same byline I used to use (but have recently changed). Luckily they haven’t used a profile pic of me. What do I do in this instance? I tried contacting Twitter but no avail. I also tried messaging this person to get them to change their details but obviously no luck there either. This could cause a problem since people searching for me on Twitter may in fact find this other person. The trouble is that they say they worked for the same company as I did which is not true. They are also posting some odd stuff (and some very personal stuff too) and I am worried that people will think this is me. I’m also worried that future employees may find this profile and think it is me…

      That would be frustrating but I see no other way than to persist in trying to contact Twitter to take action

    Had 2 of my main RPing accounts hacked, I was able to get one back but Twitter reset the password on my main one & I was never able to get in again as I have no bloody clue which email I made up to get the account in the first place. *sigh* my own fault there, buf Twitter won’t even tell me the email address.
