(This post has been edited 1/3/12 5:10 PM EST – Twitter @Support totally rocks! They hacked the hacker! We have regained access to our @gibsoncouponer account!)
We’ve Been Hacked on Twitter! We realized yesterday evening that we were hacked when we got an email from Twitter that the email address associated with our Twitter account had been changed. Guess What? We didn’t change it! Within minutes we realized that we could no longer access the account and our Twitter handle @gibsoncouponer had been changed.
Needless to say, we are quite stressed out over this situation. Reports have been made to Twitter @Support, ticket #4447364 and hopefully they will resolve this for us in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, the department is returning today after a week long holiday so there is probably some backlog. It will be great if we can write another post sharing how quickly this issue was resolved. (crossing fingers)
Hopefully, our followers aren’t being spammed so terribly by this NASTY HACKER! We apologize in advance and hope you will stay with us until this has been resolved.
All of our passwords have been changed to other accounts and thankfully all seems to be ok.
Please help us out and tweet this post! Maybe someone over at Twitter will notice?
