What to do if you suspect spam on Twitter
How to report spam on Twitter and make a judgement:
So you’ve seen some acitivity on Twitter that you think may be spam? Have you been through @ReachFurther’s guide to what is definitely spam on Twitter but you’re still not sure? Take a look at these steps below and check if the user is a spammer before deciding to report it, in this the last of our blog series on Twitter spam.
- If you’re unsure, click on the person’s name to view their twitter profile – if they have hardly any followers, a dodgy photo and have sent loads of tweets it’s likely to be a spammer
- Never click on a link that is shared with you by someone you don’t know and appears to be unrelated to anything you’ve been saying or a link unconnected to a direct message conversation
- If you think it could be genuine, send a message to the person to check before then clicking on the link
- Click on the profile of the offender, click on the head icon next to where it says ‘follow’ and click on ‘Report for spam’
If you get stuck, just take a look at Twitter’s guide to reporting spam.
What if I get hacked?
• Go to your settings in Twitter and change your password
• Tweet and DM any people that might have been affected and tell them you got hacked
It’s a good idea to regularly change your twitter password to avoid your account being hacked.
