There have been other less well-known security breaches of Twitter and there will likely be more, given that hackers are an unfortunate and persistent reality in our online world. If you suspect you’ve been hacked, or witness any suspicious activity on Twitter, your first line of defense is to always (and immediately) change your Twitter password. Next, notify Twitter.
Finally, Twitter has a comprehensive Safety Center where most (if not all) of your privacy and security-related questions can be answered. Periodically spend some time on the site to get the latest information on how to keep your account from being hacked.
