Thanks so much for the heads up on that, Christine! I just read that Twitter was hacked again this week, too - gah!

I know! The Twitter thing was kinda crazy. They even went into celebrities' profiles to see who they had blocked! (Like Ashton Kutcher blocks Perez Hilton--LOL--so silly)

One thing I always advise people even as just a basic precaution--make your passwords hard to guess (sounds obvious but you'd be surprised); and change your password every once in a while.
