It appears that my Twitter account has come up on someones list to try and hack this week. I logged into my account yesterday and found two messages in Spanish that I obviously had not sent. I figured it could have been a glitch in the system because most hackers would have sent more then two messages, but I immediately changed my password anyway just in case. Looks like someone is still trying to get in though. Just tried to log into Twitter and got a message saying there have been too many attempts this hour. Guess I’ll wait and see what happens.
This is a good reminder to those people who use simple passwords. Use long and random passwords that could not be guessed. Here is a good article from Microsoft on how to create good passwords that are gibberish to anyone else, but still easy enough for you to remember. http://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/passwords/create.aspx
