This blog is a Scammer Alert as to why you need to watch out for free tools! Not long ago, I was trying to find a direct link to one of my tweets and stumbled across this tweet:

I Said What on Twitter-Didn't Post this Tweet

I certainly didn’t post this tweet! How did it happen? Well, like many of you, I agreed to allow an application to access my Twitter account to review stats, etc. However, I didn’t realize that it also meant that they could post tweets on my behalf without me knowing about it. Let a lone SPAM tweets.

This is a good time to remind everyone that you should always review the applications that have access to your account and remove them!

You do this by reviewing what application have access to your account. I would do this at least yearly!

Use this link in order to review what applications you may have inadvertently authorized, and revoke their access. Make sure that you review the whole list because they can be listed more than once! Plus you can see what or who else has access to your account.
