What can I say?
Well apparently I said a lot more than people have come to expect from my mouth – as you can see from what’s been said in my twitter account!
While some of my followers were a tad offended by my tweets — some actually enjoyed these more than my normal ones plus some choose to follow me!
I’m comforted to know that I wasn’t alone in this – it was happening around the World – even Jeff Utecht and Leonard Low joined me. Though it looks like my mouth was considerably naughtier than theirs.
Leonard even apologized.
Thankfully my mate Darren Draper came to the rescue, providing a link to the twitter blog post on what had happened.
Twitter was testing a new application server tonight that didn’t work right so they rolled it back. While many people saw the error page other people experienced a more dramatic error which had them accidentally updating other people’s Twitter. Apparently some reported every time they refreshed the page they had another twitter account.
This twitter appears to have enjoyed himself – saying “I posted as 150 different random people on Twitter. It was pretty amazing”.
Meanwhile I was totally oblivious to my twitter antics – which I discovered 2 hours later when I returned to my computer. The hacking of our accounts was very short lived – stopped immediately Twitter realised the problem – but it did give me a massive panic attack at the thought of my online accounts being hacked.
Glad I use TweetScan tracking to alert me when people twitter my name.
