Twitter Temper Tantrum

We all know I have a love/hate addiction problem with twitter. I love it. I’m addicted to it. Sometimes twitter hates me.
Today there was a phishing scam going on. As soon as I tried it and realized that I had NOT been taken to OAuth, I changed my password. This worked fine for a few hours. Then around 1:06 PM (3 hours later!!!!) I get an email from twitter stating:
Due to concern that your account may have been compromised in a phishing attack that took place off-Twitter, your password was reset. Please create a new password.
Please click on the link below our copy and paste the URL into your browser:
This will reset your password.
The Twitter Team
This was about the same time an app that I was using stopped working and wanted me to log in again. And I wouldn’t have noticed it if I hadn’t first tried to reset my password about 1:20 PM. And reset, and reset, and reset …. and endless loop of reset emails! And then I contacted firstname.lastname@example.org and guess what, GOT THE SAME info from the help page that had prompted me to email the support team in the first place.
I finally got in after switching browsers.
*sigh* I have a headache now. I cussed on twitter – well as much as I do out of respect for my followers. They all have such good vocabularies I am sure they filled in the blanks and missing syllables.
I need help. No doubt about it. And now it’s time to get that coffee.
