    With Twitter's new security measure, old email address is kept usable ever if you change the email address. Some scammers use this measure to take accounts back.

    Be careful while buying Twitter accounts, buy Twitter accounts with email accounts and change any information(security question etc.) on the email account after receiving it. Don't be scammed.

    Scamers will always find the way out how to cheat. But this is the useful thing to let us know.

    Thanks. Good info. Will a scammer still be able to snatch back a Twitter account if I've changed it's user name?

    it doesn't matter much, because you can login w/ email address not just w/ handle, just do what OP recommended

    It Was Happening with Facebook Accounts Then it started with Pages now With Twitter this issue is very old
    Anther measure you can take is changing email address as soon as you recieve account if scammer retrieves account by twitter email of securing account you can also do that with their email in your account

    I'm a bit concerned about this so I've put it to the test. Not sure OP is a 100% right. Could be me over looking something, I'm noob to this. Took these steps:

    1. Bought accts from previously untried source.
    2. Changed user name, password and email.
    3. Tried logging in using original email/original pwd.
    4. Tried logging in using original email/changed pwd.
    5. Tried "Forgot password?" with original email.

    Twitter does not recognize acct steps 3-5. Am I disregarding something here? Are there other ways to reclaim an acct?

    Please note that these are all aged 2011 accts, maybe that comes into play. Any thougts greatly appreciated.
