Spreading happiness.

I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or applaud. An 18-year old hacker broke into Twitter by chipping away at a popular poster's password. The person whose account he hacked turned out to be a member of the Twitter support staff thus giving this hacker access to the entire Twitterdom. Note to self: come up with harder passwords.

unreal. It affected me greatly. I lost over 800 followers and it's been difficult to recoup. 18? Wow.

Sorry about your followers, but I am sure they'll come back. I am not sure what's worse the fact that he was able to do it, or that they made it so easy for him to do it.
