If you've got an account on Twitter, you would've surely noticed by now that quite a fair few accounts seem to be sporting over 10,000 followers, yet they're only following about a fifth of them and that they aren't an actor, singer, politician, etc..
Now a majority of these said "followers" will actually be fake accounts, because if you're tech savvy enough, you would know that there's a slight flaw in Twitters mobile website which allows a simple bot (or most people just pay someone to do it) to register loads of fake accounts,... [read more]
I did upload this to YouTube, but after five minutes of it being up, FremantleMedia whacked worldwide block on it. Kinda of stupid, but hey-ho, here it is anyways - my shitty attempt at "dubbing" for you folks to see.

It seems in the early hours of the morning, Facebook missed a bug (even though they're "supposedly" there full-time monitoring them) which subsequently leaked your email address and telephone number to someone who you may not have granted access to seeing. Bit of poor performance there Facebook in my opinion.
