It wasn’t me! Twitter admits to unfollowing for us

By | January 22nd, 2012|Categories: Internet Tools, Social Media|Tags: , , , , |

Twitter has confirmed that there is a known issue which seems as if it is unfollowing our followers. Well, what they actually say is that it just appears that your friends have been unfollowed but really they haven't.  However this doesn't explain why you cannot dm users that you know that you were following previously. The first comments on this page from this Twitter support blog are 6 months old, of which there are 345 comments - so I assume thats how old the post is but still we have this problem. People say a fix is to reload the twitter.com page, it doesn't show those users as unfollowed anymore. I haven't tried this yet. However, its good news to know that Twitter to acknowledge the fact, as its pretty embarrassing to say - I didn't unfollow you, it must have been twitter - yeah sure! Mind you, now its a good excuse to use, if say you unfollowed someone by mistake or in the heat of the moment! ha!  No, of course I wouldn't do that! This unfollowing is not a new issue, [...]

Is this you in this picture ? Twitter Phishing scam!

By | July 9th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

This is an old MSN scam which has now reached Twitter - the MSN scam was  trying to get  your credit card details and any other personal details, so I'm a bit wary of this one on Twitter. Its spreading fast as you can see from these Tweets ..... Its coming through as a DM from one of your friends, which makes you think its real - but its not of course.  When you click it, it Dm's your friends. Don't click If you have then check your approved applications and remove anything dodgy looking -  change your password and do a scan to be on the safe side. I will let you know more, when I find  out more information. In the meantime, better to be safe than sorry and do the above. Hope this helps

Twitter Viagra scam DM spreading fast

By | June 24th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

There is a new Phishing scam or spam DM spreading quickly around Twitter at the moment,  seemingly a direct message that is sent from your friend  says...... (or similar) "I got huge discounts on Viagra, cialis and more, no prescription needed." This is what twitter are saying ........ I didn't click the link myself so I'm not sure where the link takes you, although hopefully Google chrome would have warned me as it is pretty secure. However....... Please don't click it, as it will be DM'ed to many of your followers - and this will keep it alive! I personally, never click any links that are DM'd to me, without knowing about it first.  They are either spam or self promotions, both of which should not be in my DM box. If there is something to say @ me -  If I do get something I am not sure of - I ask the sender if they meant to send it, on this occasion I asked as a joke as why would someone send me something about Viagra :) If you have clicked [...]
