My Twitter Account Was Hacked!!!

How to avoid this in the future:

The next time a website asks you to “sign in with Twitter”, don’t. They can’t gain access to your Twitter unless you specifically allow them access, so read before you click anything on any website. If you’re a bit of a goof and tend to click things without reading first, be sure to periodically check your settings on Twitter (as shown in above screenshots) to make sure you haven’t allowed anyone access to your account.

Tweet Smart!
