The accounts of several people I know were hacked last weekend. No, it wasn't Anthony Weiner style stuff-- just some spam and an attempt to spread a virus or two.
Still, it was enough to make me angry. Twitter is a big outfit, and the hack attack showed appalling lack of security. Passwords were stolen, and there was junk flying throughout cyber space.
Even though I was lucky, and wasn't hacked, I have enough problems. I don't need unauthorized Tweets going out under my name.
Twitter puts a lot of great information at my fingertips. However, it's not worth the security risk. The plug gets pulled if it happens again.
