To Spam or Not To Spam: That is Not The Choice Anymore?
This is something new that I did not discover immediately because Twitter is very lousy in presenting me my own tweets and the owner of twitter account is not notified about its own tweets.
Every 10-12 hours, for quite a time now, I supposedly tweet from my twitter account spam-tweets with the same content:
“Are you serious about weight loss? Read this article ASAP! <a varying URL link to a site with the same content>”
I left two tweets as a sample:
Are you serious about weight loss? Read this article ASAP! http://trustedwebnews.com
I removed access to all applications but these spam-tweets reappear, mostly at my night-hours, so I remove them in 6-8 hours after their staying in my feed under my twitter account-name!
I can login to web resources (sites, blogs, social networks, etc.) sites through a SSO (single-sign-on or single-sign-through) using Twitter, Disqus, OpenID, etc. accounts without re-typing my username and password, even after explicitly removing my access. I simply press confirm-access buttons and my cached in browser credentials are being used.
Why cannot the earlier given access be cached by the sites and re-used by hackers after I removed my access from target applications. And what about if I am presented the wrong descriptions during signing in?
And what choice I do have anyway?
There are simply no tracking of resources (sites) to which I ever signed in with Twitter.
I login with my SSO to comment, to post, etc. and then I even do not remember all such sites.
Even if I did, they mostly do not let to drop my accounts anyway
Is it a wrong question?
Tell me how to track and/or to stop spam-tweeting from my twitter account if I removed access to it to any application!
Woah! Read Those Twitter Authorizations Carefully
Spam tweets stopped
Before appearance of spam tweets I created only one derivative (through my twitter account login) account on a web site having built-in based on IPB (IP.Board) WCMS functionality of tweeting from it and republishing tweets from twitter account to that website.
And my account was banned soon after I tried to ask site’s administration team about possibility of spam tweets through my account on that web site.
I shall not indicate the URL of the site since this topic is interesting from conceptual point of view but not for tracing concrete technical or ethical breaches.
