I woke up this morning to about fifty different messages letting me know that our twitter account @GCReading has been hacked. Last night I received a direct message from a friend with a message saying "Hey, This is you right?" with a link attached to it. I, like an idiot, fell for this and clicked the link. I thought maybe my friend found a photo of me or something and was asking. Once I clicked the link I guess that was the okay for them to hack our Twitter account.
The only direct messages you should have gotten from us was from TruTwit. We have been using Trutwit for quite sometime to verify certain twitter accounts. There was a time when we were getting a lot of bot messages sent to us and it got tiring after a while. TruTwit is legit, but due to this hack I have also stopped using TruTwit to be safe. Our passwords have been changed and the direct messages should have stopped.
So please, please, if you receive a message saying "Hey, this is your right?" with a link, IGNORE IT. I am so sorry this has happened and hopefully everything is fixed now. If you did happen to click the link, I suggest that you change your password so this doesn't happen to you as well. It is my fault and I am so sorry.
If you continue to get random direct messages from me, please send me an e-mail at Damaris(AT)goodchoicereading(dot)com. Thank you again to those who took the time to send me personal messages and tweets letting me know about this hack. I really appreciate it.
