Twitter DM Phishing Program Going Around

If you get a DM that says “hey, FIND Out your IQ! here [link]” or “hi, look at this quiz [link]” — DON’T click the link.

If you’ve experienced this but already clicked the link (doh!), change your password immediately. Additionally, tell the person that the DM came from so they are aware that their Twitter account has been compromised and to change their password.

Scammers/Spammers suck.

  • 90% of the DMs I get are spam. I'm really getting tired of it.

    No, you did not make $300/day by using the info at bit.ly.123…..
    No, you did not lose 40 lbs in one month from the secret at bit.ly.234…

    I don't even read my DMs any more. Sort of makes twitter less useful.
