Twitter Advice

Due to concern that your account may have been compromised in a phishing attack that took place off-Twitter, your password was reset.

Please make sure to:

  • Scan your computers for viruses / malware, especially if unauthorized tweets continue to be posted in your accounts even after you’ve changed the password.
  • Check the Connections page at http://twitter.com/account/connections and revoke the access privileges of any third party applications that you do not recognize.
  • Avoid providing your username and/or e-mail and password to untrusted third-party sites.
    Remove any updates that you did not post personally.
  • There is also a specific help page here.
