This is the kind of thing that just makes me insane. . .
Adam’s accounts, including Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, and his email have been hacked. Someone purposely broke in or gained access to his passwords and took electronic control of his life. Many of the tweets you have read in the last day haven’t even been from him, but rather, from the hacker. And while the hacker may have thought it a cute practical joke, it really isn’t funny. It causes extra work and stress not only for Adam, but for the companies who manage these social networking sites and his email provider.
I’m not sure I could maintain a sense of humor about this – thank goodness Adam can. I guess the up side is that you know you “have made it big” when you are worth hacking!
The Twitter exchanges between Danny and Adam as the whole thing was going down, went something like this:
– Hey tweeters Adam asked me 2notify u all that his Twitter account as been hacked and he’s working on regaining control of it. Let peeps know
– hey guys it adam just got my twitter running back
– Hey u all me and Adam are gonna bubble tweet the truth. Apparently someone on his account posted right after I did saying it’s him
