    So i used a application some time back and think they changed my password.and some days back they changed my email as well.

    Now i can't access the account, cant retrieve password as email is changed. There was a email from Twitter that my email was changed and use the link if it wasn't my action. I did it and replied to twitter mails for verification but there hasn't been any response from Twitter.

    created a few tickets on twitter zendesk but you need to login with the same account to access the ticket, if you try with another account you don't get to see the ticket.

    What should i do?? This was a good account with 4500+ followers.

    any suggestion from the people who have experiences with these things. Post them here or PM me. I would appreciate it.

    i've learned my lesson, don't start flaming.

    There is nothing much to do if you want to get back your account because the associated email is also being changed. You are now screwed up.

    The only thing you can do is help other people not to login with that twitter application. If you can post the link to that application you wil be a person who helped many others from getting screwed.

    Yeah, twitter doesn't really care about account security. They just figure if you lose it, you can just make another one.

    Coool that's good to hear Twitter probably looks at IP logs unlike FB or MS which you never get your account back if its stolen
