Twitter is Promoting Malware on its platform
I have been monitoring the source-code of the link that is being promoted here:
Get More Twitter Followers https://t.co/DQzeOWuYP1 Thank you 🙂
— ally (@bakugouvie) April 1, 2020
The link allows you to get FREE FOLLOWERS ,
in exchange for the FREE FOLLOWERS – you auto-spam everyone that is following you – a link to the tweet.
I have reported the user @bakugouvie about 15 times – twitter says that there’s nothing wrong with it.
This is misleading and false.
Twitter simply DOES NOT CARE that the link infects millions of its users.
As can be seen by the quoted replies to the tweet:
if you get sent this DO NOT CLICK THE LINK, even out of curiosity. It can compromise your account. https://t.co/1Ec37P5z62

Don't click this link if someone sends it to you
I mean it should be common sense on the internet, but apparently not. People are still clicking it. https://t.co/Y1EZ1yWBjP

If someone DMs you this tweet, ignore it it's trying to hack into your account. Besides, at least personally, I'd rather have my followers be genuine and not be there to boost my numbers. https://t.co/hMADuEfKyj

If you receive below tweet in DM from any of your followers please delete it, kindly do not click the link in that tweet. It is a spam tweet and if you click all your followers will receive the same message .https://t.co/IOLoZ35UkN

Your twitter profile is currently hacked. Follow these steps
Go to settings
Go to accounts
In accounts , go to apps and sessions
In apps and sessions, go to connected apps
In connected apps, remove all the access of other apps by revoking each app
Then come back and change your password to your twitter account
Too little too late. I’ve already clicked opened the link. How do I stop it from tweeting to future followers.
