We Got Our STOLEN Twitter Account Back ~! - Sammy Makes Six

We Got Our STOLEN Twitter Account Back ~!

I am thoroughly impressed and happy this morning to have logged in and found that the people at Twitter had actually been working on our case. As you might recall, our account was stolen from us by a hacker, one minute we were logged in and the next someone hacked in and changed the email address, and completely shut us out. I blogged and tweeted and tried to call attention to it and a quite a few of our followers stopped following and blocked the account. I want to say thank you to all of you that did that for us. 

I guess I had really little faith in Twitter actually getting it back for us, and since we were right in the middle of some giveaways and had the Flash Follow giveaway coming, I started a new account @smashbravoteam2. This new account now has over 1,300 followers and we have decided to keep it and use it to help promote all our giveaways and events. 

This was really such a painful experience because it's an account that I have worked so hard on for almost a year. We had put money and time into it, plenty of it, so to think that these hackers can just take it all from you in a matter of minutes was so upsetting. BUT now we have it back, and I have started plugging it back into all the programs I use for growing it. I want to say thank you to the customer support at Twitter and our followers for being so awesome. If you want to follow us please go here (@smashbravoteam).

Wow, I must say that I am impressed. I don't use Twitter myself, but I can imagine that if the same happened with my Facebook account, I wouldn't have much faith in getting control of the account back. I'm happy you got some resolution.

Boo to hackers! I had someone try to hack my facebook page, but I was online and logged out to change the password before they did damage. I'm so glad you're set back up!
