Since we wanted to add support to some Twitter satellite services in Kamoso I decided I would sign up in this popular service (never been in Twitter until today).

I got surprised when I found out that both my and accounts were already taken. I told the service that I forgot my password and they let me reset it on both. That helped me see that I was subscribed to an African religious healing half-god on both accounts.

It’s scary to see how a security bug in such a huge web service stole my identity on such a little part of the world. I wonder what could have happened if the hijacker wanted to do something actually serious…

-1 for Twitter.
