Twitter is pissing me off. Yesterday, I found names on my account that I supposedly added to follow.... Except no, I did not. I though, okay just a glitch, and unadded them.

But then this morning, I found almost 15 strange accounts added to mine. I know I didn't add them. So one of two things is possible:

Twitter is adding these names to my account for reasons unknown.
I've beeb hacked by a bot who serial-adds other bots.

Either way, no reason is good enough for that kind of shit to happen. If it happens again, I'm not only deleting that account, but will not go back.

I don't tweet, but the "auto follow" feature that lets you autofollow people who follow you--that's supposed to be gone, right? But besides that, Google came up with websites about forcing people to follow you on Twitter (likely for spam purposes). If you don't feel like reporting all of them, I guess you could tell Twitter, "Fix this or I'm leaving" and hope they jump on the problem.

Maybe this will help? It mentions privacy settings, could be worth a shot:

Sorry it's being a pain. I don't like my websites messing up on me either.
