Yes Dianne, and that is why you should not click on any links that come to you through Twitter's DM's. LOL, I did not realize that there were "hackers" on Twitter until my account got hacked. Learn't my lesson from that DM. And yes, I notice them and just smile and delete.
If someone wants my attention, they can contact me through my Twitter profile which has my Virtual Assisting website information. And that has a contact form - and boy do the spammers abuse that. LOL, I now know the regular spammers - don't waste my time opening up the info I get in my email box.
Hmmmm, I often wonder what are they after?
I know from when my Yahoo email got hacked into after having it for several years with no issues - the IT guy at the university I was working at told me that a lot of people have their personal bank stuff and other sensitive material stored in their email. That is what the hackers sometimes are after. Some just want to prove they can hack or send out spam to your contacts in the hopes of getting cash out of them.
Not sure how to work around the Twitter hackers - maybe someone may have some tips to share.
Glad to see someone else is noticing as I am new to Twitter.
