Who is viewing my Twitter Profile – nobody knows, you cannot as yet get this information from anywhere.
We must be obsessed about seeing who’s looking, spying or stalking our profiles as these worms that say that they can tell you who is looking at your Twitter profile are always getting attention on Facebook and now on Twitter. Or is it that we are paranoid that we have stalked someone elses twitter account and they will find out – for whatever reason, these tweets are coming to get us based on our paranoias.
Who is stalking me on twitter
A worm with the name “Who’s looking at your Twitter Profile” spread like wild fire yesterday, it was very popular indeed, if you’d seen my warnings about these on Facebook you may have thought twice about clicking and therefore spreading the worm further.
These annoying links do not work, they do not give you any information, all they do is take over your account (because you authorise it) and retweet or spam so more people click on the link. Pretty pointless but very annoying. Like Facebook, Twitter cannot give you that information, anyway. Its just another Phishing tweet.
As Del Harvey From Twitters Trust & Safety team – @safety confirmed in this tweet.
Apparently this link has been blocked now, but I’m sure it won’t be long before there is another one around, just be careful what you allow authority to.
UPDATE – there is a new link now – starting – http://goo.gl/ and its spreading all over again.
If you did get caught out by this or indeed anything else similar you still need to Revoke Access to get rid of it.
How to remove the Twitter Worm if you’ve been compromised.
- Revoke Access.
Plus change your password.
Hope this helps.
