    Well a few days ago my account was hacked https://twitter.com/FlTINSPlRATION and so was my email that I was using with that account. Long story short I contact twitter about it let them know that my acc was hacked and their response was that they cannot verify me as a true holder of that acc unless I write them from the email that was associated with that account. I explain to them that my email was hacked as well and that he set it up that my email account closes on 11.9.2014 unless I re-activate it ( I can still log into that acc but cannot get to inbox and other folders unless I reactivate it with the code with my alternate email adress but of course he changed my alternate email adress with his so if I want to get the code it will just go to his mail) I wrote to microsoft support service but they are bad to be honest and I doubt I will ever get my email back even tho it has my real name and all other info on it. Twitter support is bullshiting as well they could easily check the IP login history and similar stuff.. So yeah guys there goes 3 years of putting lots of effort into that acc and the income I was getting from it.

    Use different "P.V.A." accounts. Update your AV. And yes, do not put all your eggs in 1 bucket

    To help us out, did you make it easy to be hacked? Simple passwords, or did you use memorable or repeat passwords.

    I have never been hacked so would be interested to hear what weakness was exploited.

    it was 11 letter long password and different one for email address... Try use mobile security.. I tried it once, never got the code back so didnt bother with it anymore..maybe it would be differenet now if I contacted twitter and let them know that I did not receive code..

    Nothing can be stable for long. You've always got to diversify your earning basket. Try different methods and experiment with new platforms. Every time. Each time.
