My Twitter was hacked & @ changed?!?! what can i do

I’ve had this account almost 10 years!
I login to it today & the @ is changed the @ originally it was a 4 character and it seems someone tried to swap it & then realized it was lost!
I’ve emailed twitter telling them this!

It is an @ very close to me, has anyone ever had this happen before & if so what are the chances of me getting it back?

I’m sure if you emailed them from email that’s used for account creation that they will help you and give hou old username back.


I did email them from the email that the account was created on in 2010! They should give me it back?

I’m pretty sure they will. Wait for couple of days, if nothing happens, send new email.

Has anyone ever had this kind of issue?
I know i read an article about @N having this issue kind of, and he got his @ back!

Just wait for their reply.

you’ve had that problem of your @ getting changed & they revert it for you?

I’ve seen an OG 4 letter handle on Twitter get recovered, after a failed switch attempt like this, by filing a ticket with the creation email stating they were hacked. You should get it back.

If you have a simple password it can easily get bruted.

Make sure to have 2 step login enabled in the future

Don’t use the same password on all your accounts because any database can get breached & therefore making ur other accounts vulnerable.
