that didn't take long

Got my first Twitter spam last night, in the form of a "follower" who insinuated herself into my short list of followers. I blocked her. It's disconcerting to see how quickly a Twitter account can acquire spam.

UPDATE, 10:09PM: Another spamalicious follower appeared. Blocked him, too.

Someone got control of my hotmail account and spammed my contacts yesterday. What really sucks is that I don't even know if it was on my end (probably a key copier program at my hagwon--the computers there are full of viruses) or on hotmail's end (they were hacked a few months ago).

Looks like I need to do a bit of studying once again. Well, I've changed my e-mail password, so that's a start.

This is what eventually spurred me to actually delete my Twitter account rather than just let it languish unused. Every time you get a follower they send you an email, and I just got tired of the spam.

Given enough time, I may be headed down that same road. We'll see.


Thanks for the heads-up, and good luck resolving the problem.
