There have been several high-profile Twitter hacks in recent times. That’s not something that most of us need to worry about though – very few are actually prominent enough to be targeted in attacks like these. On the other hand, most of us are guilty of being careless when it comes to granting apps access to our services. If you come across an app that promises cool features or says it will give you followers, you might be tempted to give it access to your Twitter account, which is rather like handing over the keys to your house to someone.
