    Thanx for the heads up! I've seen attempts to hack my Twitter account, lately I see all these requests to add chicks I don't know to Facebook -They have good looking pics, but I think it is a scam to get people to add them, so they can get access to our email accounts for spamming and sometimes our cell numbers as well. Some of these scams depend on people also klicking links. So I just don't klik anything I don't know where it goes, I always check the destination.
