GeneralAnyone's Twitter account been compromised lately? [modified] PinmemberAndyStephens18-Feb-14 22:20 
Although I have a Twitter account, I very rarely use it, but in recent days I've had a couple of strange tweets sent from my account. One simply said "Hi!" and another said "Fwd:(5)". I received an email from Twitter last night to say that they had reset my password as they suspected my account had been compromised.
 
Needless to say I've changed my password, but I'm not sure how it could have been hacked in the first place - the original password was very strong, and I only access Twitter via Windows phone and iPad, so can't see malware being to blame on these platforms?
 
This seems to have been a widespread thing, as I've found a number of people who have had the same "Fwd:" tweets sent from their accounts recently, but I've not heard anything about a possible Twitter hack/attack. Anyone?
