If you have landed on this guide, it is highly probable that you have noticed something suspicious with your Twitter account. It was the right move on your part because it is good to act quickly. It also means that you are keeping a close eye on your account on the social media platform, which is a golden rule for staying safe online.

Take a look at the following steps below, which will help you realize whether you have been hacked for sure or not. If one or more of these is true, you must explore recovery options immediately.

  3. You have seen direct messages or tweets from your account, which you are sure you did not send or publish.
  4. Any other action has been performed from your account, which you did not do.
  5. You have received password reset emails, or your current password will not work anymore.

Next, you can begin the process of Twitter account recovery and have your account back in no time.

  1. The first step in the recovery process is to change your Twitter password or at least the password combination, especially if you cannot log in with your old password. If you have been hacked, the perpetrator may have already set their own password.
  2. The second thing you can do is fill out this form and request Twitter Support to send you a password reset email. Try to use the strongest possible password combination, and ensure you do not reuse it for any other accounts online.
