I Got Hacked…

One Sentence Story

My Twitter Got Hacked

As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I woke up this morning to find that my Twitter had been hacked. I know, what a lovely start to February. Can you tell February is going to be a great month? Because I can. That was sarcasm by the way…

Anyway, I was able to follow the protocol and alert Twitter. Hopefully, the whole issue gets solved really soon. I’m not in the mood to deal with this long term. So, if you get contacted by that account or anything like that please ignore it until the issue is fixed. I will keep you guys updated.

I Reconnected

In yesterdays post, I talked about connecting with a cousin of mine during the wedding. Ironically, we went to high school together but we didn’t really know each other and we didn’t know we were related. Her aunt (her dad’s sister) is the lady who called me fat that one time, lol.

Anyway, my sister and I went for drink with her today. And it was actually really fun. She’s a great person and we really connected. Also we just happened to be wearing the same outfit (kinda) lol.

So, we ended up having quite a bit in common. And she’s really friendly and open. We talked for quite a while with no awkward pauses which is really something. Obviously, she’s nothing like my mean aunt. Thankfully. Now, I have one more cousin to hang out with. The only problem is she lives in a different city but if she’s ever in Nairobi ever again we will definitely hang out.

  1. Wow, I hope you recover your account, Pooja, this is so wrong and annoying! I can’t understand the mind that does this. My IG was hacked once and was lucky to recover it.

    1. Someone stole my IG handle last year and I think it’s a bot account. Idk why they went after my original IG handle – I’m not famous or a common name and can’t understand why I would be someone’s target. Still bugs me to this day but I haven’t been active on IG nor do I miss it.

      1. IG csn be both good and bad. It doesn’t help young people’s well being with the competition and so on. I’m too old to be bothered by that stuff!

  2. On the topic of being fat, my little sister calls me fat despite the fact that a lot of the girls I went to school with can’t forgive me my crazy metabolism, I can never gain weight and still look like I am in high school. Anyway, I wanted to share my conviction that the month of February is going to be fantastic, I don’t know why exactly but I definitely have this confidence. Twitter can wait, ha-ha

    1. Yeah, I mean “fat” is something so many people experience being called even when they’re a perfectly average size. It’s sort of bizarre how obsessed the world is with size. Haha thanks, I appreciate the positivity.

    1. Oh good, yeah I was monitoring the account and so far it seems they haven’t messed anything up it’s just they’ve changed the login information. Hopefully, everything will be fixed soon.

  3. I am glad you had a good time with your cousin. That sucks when someone does that to your account, just who do they think they are? I hope it will be resolved soon. My FB account was hacked back in 2016. I had to create a whole new account. I hope we have an early spring. I think this month is going to be great. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

    1. Oh I remembered my fb tragedy.
      I had to make 9 accounts back to back.
      I remember some fraudster reported my account every time with their multiple account.
      So I had to make account everytime 🤷🏻‍♂️

    2. Thanks so much and yes I hope it’s resolved soon. That sucks but yeah being hacked is unfortunately common these days. Have a great weekend too.

  4. I hate that you’ve been hacked. It seems like a great number of people I know are dealing with that on multiple platforms.

    1. Yeah, a lot of people are being hacked these days and it’s kind of crazy that most of them are just like regular people. Hopefully some measures are put in place in the future to prevent hacking.

    1. Thanks so much. Sorry to hear that but sometimes we all need a day where we don’t do anything. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive,

  5. Wah what an interesting way to start feb!
    I hope things get back to normal.
    Have you recently tapped to any link or something?
    Glad to know about your cousin and that you had a great time.
    Best wishes

  6. I have a newish cousin recently as well, weird. I don'[t have a ton in common with him, but he is very well mannered and excited to be reunited with our family. My mom is over the moon that he is back around our family.

  7. Is this the first time that you’ve been hacked, Pooja? ☹️ I hope you get your account back soon. I was wondering why I haven’t seen any of your Tweets on your timeline, but I figured it was the Twitter algorithm’s fault, which btw I detest so much 😒

    1. P.S. I checked your Twitter account and your WP posts are still linked to it, so they’re still being uploaded to Twitter. Whoever hacked it didn’t change your settings. Silver linings, maybe?

    2. Yes, first time on social media but I was hacked once von my email. Thanks so much and yeah it seems everything is okay with my account so far I just can’t login. Yes, the Twitter algorithm just sucks now 😫

  8. “Mean aunt”… 😂😋So refreshing Pooja 😋

    Glad you had a great time and reconnected. Relationships are always important especially at the start. This will be a good one😉

  9. Getting hacked sucks! Hope the issue resolves soon!

    I love when you hang out with a cousin and realize they’re cool enough to chill with. Literally, at the last family function, I hung out with a cousin after years and was worried we’d have NOTHING in common but she turned out to be SO much fun. Again, different city. Hoping to hangout with her again soon.

    1. Thanks so much!

      That’s so nice. Yeah I think sometimes we really connect with people as adults that we never did before. And it sucks when you’re in a different city but hopefully you can hang out soon.

  10. What’s going on with me at the moment? On political betting sites, long shot betting on Chris Christie as the next U.S president or vice president in 2024. because Biden is a historical reminder of Lyndon B. Johnson, and Christie like Nixon started off as a straight shooter. History often repeats itself in many forms.

  11. While you were being hacked, I was getting beaten up by Google search console 😆
    Apparently, my site doesn’t show on Google when someone searches for it. Why? Because in Google Search Console, my site is discovered but not indexed. Argh! I hope to resolve this issue soon or I might have to lose Google search privileges for 6 months! 🥺

    By the way, how fluffy are you now? Lol

  12. I’m so sorry to hear that, Pooja. I hope Twitter responds to you soon. And it’s always nice connecting with non-annoying relatives!

  13. Unsolicited advice incoming 😅 have you ever tried using a password locker app? I’ve been using one for years and all my passwords for sites are 12-99 character random nonsense that’s basically impossible to hack. Many people are against having their passwords all stored in one app but it’s quite safe as your passwords aren’t stored with the company that provides the app, so even if they get hacked (which mine has been) nobody can access your stuff.

    You could, of course, create your own complicated passwords and write them down. I just do this for the ease of use.

    I’ve been reconnecting with people from the distant past lately too and one has possibly resulted in me getting a pretty great job. Life really is all about people, haha.

  14. Great to hear about the new connection. Not great to hear about the hacking. I agree with snarebox about using a password keeper. Have a great weekend; hope you get your Twitter back.

  15. Glad to know, everything went well with your meeting.

    About me….Today, I met a lot of uncles and aunts (mamas’ and mausis’) whom i’ve rarely met and I loved almost all of them.
    Everyone was so warm and I am just sooo glad to meet them!! ❤✨

  16. I am really sorry to read your Twitter account got hacked, mine also got hacked and I had to open a new account. Hopefully you will not have to do that, another interesting post that I really enjoyed reading


                    1. That’s awful but sometimes there isn’t anything you can do about it. If Twitter doesn’t help us we have to just let go.

  17. I’ve never used Twitter but I really hope it’s resolved soon. What I do to keep all my socials safe (including WordPress) is to activate 2 factor authentication. So someone would also have to steal my phone to get into my Facebook, WordPress, email and Instagram. Considering that most hackers aren’t that determined, it can help. I hope this helps! Best wishes for February

  18. Hope you get your Twitter back, and glad your cousin is a bit more polite than her aunt ! Makes me think I should try to see some of my cousins more, as you say is difficult when they live elsewhere …

  19. Good luck with getting Twitter sorted out! I’m glad you got to make a nice connection with your cousin, even if her mother is rather mean

  20. Sorry to hear that. Please alert twitter immediately and hopefully the company can do a better job preventing such things from happening. That can be something really shocking. I mean the first thing in the morning to see somebody impersonating you on twitter…

  21. sorry to hear that pooja and yup I saw your ig status on informing twitter users regarding the incident. Hope this will get fixed soon and as a writer, it might sound terrible since SM platforms are essential for us to get connected and share our work. will see what happens

  22. Sorry to heat that you got your Twitter account hacked and I hope that it gets sorted out quick as possible. It’s very unfortunate that happened to you as the scammers are out in full force imitating professionals and ruining their hard work. Its a small world where you can go to high school and not even know but it is great that you found them and connected right away

  23. I’m so sorry to read about your Twitter getting hacked! But it’s great news for your cousin! It’s always such a nice feeling to connect to someone “new” from your family!

  24. I’m so sorry your Twitter account got hacked. Hopefully, it was resolved by now. I’m doing okay, just overwhelmed and not having time to read blogs or try to write in my drafts. I’m also not very motivated to do much lately, kind of on autopilot. I’m trying to get out of it, working on myself and my self-care.
