Twitter Antics

Post by littlepixie on 04.10.11 22:38

Seems like someone is playing silly beggars on twitter hacking or cloning people questioning the abduction theory. I hardly use direct messaging on there but in the last few days have been inundated with DM's directing me to "nasty blogs about me".

This is one of the reasons I don't do twitter or Facebook.

I am sorry to hear you have been targeted in this way.

TM must be either getting very worried about their abduction theory being undermined by more and more sites and discussion forums or they are causing distraction to cover some other activity.

I am probably following you or visa versa. To date I have had 5 of such DM's but after ignoring the first it doesn't matter except to inform the sender. Are we the only ones getting them (I.E. so called "antis")?

As you know I am @gillyspot on twitter having given up on being different on here (makes life simpler for me and the "trolls") big grin

I got this,

abuseofpower
I saw a real bad blog about you, you seen this? s78.biz/k/tove

I am not stupid enough to actually click on the link. It is probably full of virus.

It does seem that they are "all supposed to be" from people who don't believe Maddie was abducted. Someone stirring it no doubt. I havent had any from any of the non-McCann related people I follow.

Obviously trying to stop us tweeting about the case.

@abuseofpower is not a "pro" mccann tweeter. I have now had 5 of them and others have had more. Ignore the messages and hopefully they will go away (if we don't click and spread the virus). Some say it is to do with McCann others say otherwise (believe what you want).

Gillyspot, I know who Abuse of Power is and I've sent her the DM I received to let her see it. All the ones I've received are from people I trust. (Apart from the foxylady one who I didnt know was Blondie til just now).

I dont anymore, I did it before I realized what scum it was. I thought I had unfollowd him, apperently I hadn't so in that way it was a good reminder for me to do so. I don't use twitter very often, and my memory is like a goldfish at times :)

The abuseofpower account is mine - I had a message from Twitter this morning saying I'd been hacked and to change my password, which I've done.

I actually had the same tweet sent to me from beausnana and someone else who I can't remember now, so it's not just me who was hacked.

Well done Shibboleth. clapping This is the thing. Not many people know about the potential risks of clicking on links provided by some people. Only click on links from people you feel you cna absolutely trust. If in doubt, do not go there!!! Apart from the risks of viruses, there are trackers that can trace your IP address and in the blink of an eye, you can be giving them access to your computer, not just on Twitter, but on forums such as this or any other.

Well daft me clicked but luck would have it twitter would not let me see it,The thing is I got the DM from a EX POLICEMAN and he just did not look like a person that would do such a thing, I was very shocked Crying I wrote a reply thinking it came him, I hope I have done not the wrong thing in doing so. affraid I now have a new password on twitter.

I had the same experience as scotclogs. Clicked on the link, got a warning "don't go there!"
Did that protect me and all my (email etc) accounts? I changed only my twitter password. Should I do anything else?

You could run a scan of your computer Kiko - I scanned mine yesterday but nothing came up.

I just got the same message again this afternoon, from Get Em Goncalo *allegedly*. It directs to a site in Russia.

So, Twitter know accounts are being hacked, but are they doing anything about it. Can they get their IP addresses? How are the hackers able to do this, can anyone explain? I don't know how it works.

I've just had another one from your twitter account this evening now making 5 from you. I'd check your computer by running a scan as well.

Well, no one should get any more DM's from my account because I've deactivated it now and in 30 day's time it will be deleted.

Sorted.
