With the recent hacks to Burger King’s and Jeep’s Twitter accounts, Twitter’s hacking problem has become clearer than ever. And as the linked article mentions, these aren’t the only companies to be hacked. Fox News, PayPal, and NBC News have all been hacked, and so have many other companies.
You might think that because you run a small business, you’re not in danger of being hacked. You assume that the hackers only care about taking down the big boys to make a statement, but you’d be wrong. Every business (and individual) that has a Twitter account is at risk of being hacked, and we all need to be on alert.
Getting hacked can cause serious problems for your company. It could cost you followers and customers, cause damage to your brand’s image, and cause false messages to be spread about your company.
What can you do to reduce the odds of your company getting hacked on Twitter?
