"Who Unfollowed Me?"
« on: April 20, 2016, 09:31:22 pm »
So I got a random link in my Twitter messages, and I pressed on it and it sent almost everyone following me a message with the link?

Has this happened to anyone, because now it's spreading like crazy

And so many people are pissed at me too

      This is the reason why you have to be extremely careful when you're on any website but ecspecially social media such as Twitter and Facebook. Most malitious material will be found in messages but other content as simple as posts can be harmful to your account. Be sure before you read any message that you know who the message came from. It sort of goes back to the rule your mother taught you when hou were little, don't talk to strangers. It can lead to troubke with your account far more serious than losing some of your followers. Certain links can install viruses such as trojans that can absolutely wreck your life or your computer, some can even do both. I've had something like this happen to me before with my school's computer however, it was with a computer program and two malware programs that were very annoying. I'd suggest just stay away from suspicious e-mails and users you don't know in general. I don't mean to offend you either, but it's also not very smart for you to go around clicking links on the internet. Don't go to links that you're oblivious of.

Thank you Celestin, you made a very good point. I'm going to avoid all unknown links so this doesn't happen again. ^^

Yeah, it's a malicious link that has been spreading like wildfire.

Change your password, and email too if possible. And yeah, don't click random or suspicious links you did not ask for.

I clicked on it too, RIP me. Luckily though there's only really 1 person who I actively communicate with on Twitter so they rest can unfollow me or whatever if they get annoyed

Oh no so many people got the link o.0 you may want to check your messages to see whether any messages were sent, and then go to settings to disable the application

Serious question here:

Why the fuck are you clicking random links in the first place? I expect this sort of thing from my middle-aged dad or grandparents not from y'all.
