To protect your Twitter account from being hacked in the future, use a strong password that is difficult to guess…When logging into your Twitter account, ensure you are on Twitter’s site before entering any sign-in information. Watch for any suspicious links in your Twitter feed or email, and ensure your computer’s security software is up-to-date.Source: Danielle Gream
