Grandad uses Twitter occasionally, as do I.
He had the gross misfortune to somehow get tangled with a thing called Mobsterworld.
Having got his password they then proceeded to bombard all his followers with DMs [Direct Messages] purporting to come from him, and inviting everyone to join.
Needless to say, his followers were not too happy.
I changed his password. That was no problem.
However, this Mobsterworld crowd weren’t too happy as they were trying to access his account using his old password, and they were trying repeatedly. As a result, the account was locked by Twitter, due to the number of unsuccessful atempts.
So here is a warning to all Twitterers –
Under no circumstances, join Mobsterworld. Do not be taken in by ANY DM inviting you to join a Mafia gang.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
