Hey everyone, guess who is having a party at their house! Well everyone in the whole world knows at this point if you have been following people on Twitter. One of the basic rules of social networking is always work to keep yourself safe. If you post a link and a password to a protected page or web site, someone is going to simply follow the process and guess what, you got party crashers.
It is not like you could really host all 4000 of your favorite twitter friends at your house, but when you post a URL and password to a protected page on Twitter, someone is going to come along and follow the process which could potentially expose data that you might want to keep at least semi-private like the picture above.
I really appreciate the “edit this page” function as well as export and share with everyone across many social networks. What amazes me though is that this is live data, this really happened yesterday that someone posted a URL and Password for something obviously private across twitter. If you are reading this one, please take this as a cautionary note. No data was altered on the site or otherwise influenced.
