Are you noticing more SPAM on Twitter recently?

     There appears to be an increasing number of spam messages being passed around on Twitter recently. Over the past few weeks I have been getting several messages asking me if I am the person in the picture. I have also been redirected to a Twitter clone site which asked me to enter my username and password. 

      It appears that my own Twitter account has been hijacked and used to spread spam messages to followers. I have been on vacation for the past few weeks so have not been checking in very often. I have gotten a few messages from others letting me know that they have been receiving odd messages from my account. I have reported this to the site and changed my password in hopes that it will stop. 

     If you continue to receive odd messages from ICTforEducators, please do let me know. Also, be cautious when using your account.
