Hootsuite Offers Twitter Security Alerts To Help Protect Your Accounts

Do you live in fear of the Syrian Electronic Army hacking your Twitter account? Or do you have a CEO with less than stellar social media skills? Or maybe you belong on our Twit List as someone who outsources “social” to interns and kinda deserve whatever public embarrassment you get.

Well, we should get just as chatty about the flipside: A teen facing a foolish punishment for creating a hashtag on Twitter that wasn’t bullying, threatening or in any way vile, but it ticked school administrators off – and they apparently can take whatever action they want, without consequence.

Did you know that a train derailed in Baltimore today? If you saw it break on Twitter, you’re likely watching events unfold as they happen.
