Alright, alright, alright. So... I did something stupid. I received a Direct Message from a blogger whom I hardly know, and the message had a link... and frankly, I clicked the link without even thinking about it. I mean, it seemed legit being that it came from a blogger and said something like, "This user is saying rude things about you". Well! That could be REAL in the blogger world. I was dumb, I was naive, I was in the moment ... and I clicked.
The link did nothing, I closed it. I wrote back, "The link doesn't work, who is the user who is saying mean things?". The reply, "That was spam, just delete it".
So... well... whatever. I didn't know what would happen exactly, and I can only get on Twitter in the evenings for the most part since I don't access the Internet too often at my day job (maybe on a recess or lunch or prep time, but that's about it). Next thing you know... I have tons and tons of messages, @ replies, texts from personal friends, BBMs.... "CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD! YOU ARE SPAMMING ME!".
I now feel super horrible that I wrote back to the first woman who spammed me... because... ohmigod, that was a lot of messages to sort through at once. Yikes. But anyway... I got home, I changed my password, I hoped it would all just go away.
Then today, "YOU ARE SPAMMING MEEE". Eff.
So, I've come. I've changed my password... AGAIN. Good God, I hope this is the end of it.
I solemnly swear to never click random links again... PROMISE, PROMISE, PROMISE!!!
P.S. If you receive a message about someone saying bad things about you... just do yourself a favour... DON'T CLICK THE LINK.
