Friends, this is a very serious edition of Tony Softli tweet of the day, a lesson in online security that we can all learn something from. Over the weekend, the reporter for the Rams' corporate broadcast partner had this tweet appear in his timeline:
OMG, I just made $340 today. This is how, try it. bitly.com/14lv8sT?wkck— Tony Softli (@SoftliSTL) June 2, 2013
Obviously, you don't want to click that link because Tony Softli was HACKED.
The dead giveaway? Correct-ish grammar, appropriate capitalization and a clear lack of hashtags. I've got $100 that says his password is "killingthemSoftli" which is also a nice summation of his personnel work with the Rams.
Tweet family that is not me! I have changed my pass word.— Tony Softli (@SoftliSTL) June 2, 2013
There is always the possibility he wasn't hacked.
Alright, kids. Lesson learned. Online privacy is very serious, and now to impart this lesson, I challenge you to come up with a better response to the tweet in question.
