Getting rid of Twitter and spam


#1

Can you stop me receiving spam and pornography from fake accounts? I keep receiving “private messages” with links to suspicious pages. The sender seeems to be a relative to me (@linda_rosengren) but she is guaranteed not the sender. I want to get rid of Twitter altogether and regret deeply that I once signed in. Here are a few of those messages:
Linda Rosengren
@linda_rosengren

k6.kz/bB2GWz
21. tammikuuta 13 5.04 ip.

And this:
Linda Rosengren
@linda_rosengren

k6.kz/4FB8i2
21. tammikuuta 13 5.04 ip.

And this:

Linda Rosengren
@linda_rosengren

k6.kz/ULjL2u
21. tammikuuta 13 5.03 ip.

Help me please! My dear nephew Linda has definitely not sent those messages. At lest one of them was very hard porn.

Am getting these spam massages too.

These spam DMs are sent by bad apps. The user’s site hasn’t been hacked. They have authorized an app that is sending spam through their account. They need to revoke any app that they do not trust. If the spam continues, they can revoke apps they don’t need until it stops.

If you receive one of these DMs, help out the sender by warning them that they have approved a bad app. Probably have no idea that their account is being used this way.

Any idea which app the k6.kz spam is coming from? I revoked all but the android app and Tumblr. I really hope it isn’t Tumblr.
