1/ This is huge... Believe #TrumpRussia

This hack is a step to getting SSN needed to tear up the elections

Protect yourself

2/ First, If you have not enabled Twitter verification

DO IT! Right NOW!

This thread can wait
(More 2 come)
/3 so let's make this real...
Popular vote or not, about 127 mil votes determined the last election

Hackers now have info on 143 mil folks
4/ the bots/aliases/trolls are preparing to do some direct & shady $h1t

They've been at this for a long while

/5 it's easy, at least in Ohio, to get voter data: DOB, address, full name - plenty to use for ID stealing

Go look

/6 IDs not to b u
I think they want 2 misdirect u

Strategically force provisional ballots (not always counted) in key areas 2 turn the vote
/7 "as Ohio goes, so goes the nation"
In OH online voter reg reqs SSN AND OH lic ID/ID #

But the PDF form ONLY needs the last 4 of the SSN
/8 so fire up the bots/trolls
Fill out the forms


When u go 2 ur polling place it's moved even tho u haven't
/8 we have got to protect our REAL selves from the virtual bots/trolls/aliases that now have our REAL identifiable information
/9 some suggestions:
Watch ur voter registration intensely this yr

Like me find UR district's checker/check often

10/ protect your online persona
Enable two-factor authentication EVERYWHERE YOU CAN

This thread shows how for Twitter, now go do FB
11/ 2-factor verification on Tumblr, Insta, Yahoo email, your bank (more later on this one), linked in...

ANY online that supports it
12/ really, it's not hard to spend 15 seconds more logging in

Better to be locked down & deal w/what you can id than be hacked unknowingly
13/ now protect your finances
ALL your identifiable information is now out there

Call your bank & CC companies
/14 most Banks & CC companies will make a note on ur acct to not proceed w/o a verbal password if u set one; it should be unique

Call them
/15 notifications for ALL spending
Set your accounts to notify at the LOWEST possible value ($1 in some cases)

You want a texts for every $
/16 if you set those notifications & get a text from a Jack in the Box in CA & your sleeping in OH, then you know you've been compromised
/17 a note on PINS and passwords
1st off, think "pass-phrase"
More/length is better than complexity & easier to remember
/18 a phrase like
"Coffeekeepsmesaneforyou" is better than "(0f3✓€&m3!"
Even "coff33k33psm3san3forU" is better if u need specials (1cap/e3s)
/19 More & memorable is best... If you really want to five into unable passwords, this article is good

/20 protect your PHONE it is now my precious
The key to all your identity since it's the verifier
/21 Use a 12+ character PIN join ur fav 3or4 4-character pins & start using the long one

DON'T use fingerprints
Convenience kills security
/22 b vigilant
#TheResistance #GeeksResist does great work, but bots/trolls/aliases r veterans of virtual attacks & they will keep trying
/23 Security best parties r needed
we all are under attack & w/the Experian breech, they have even more tools to exploit & to them:
/24 not sure how life will go
But #IBelieve in the kindness of REAL people
#IBelieve in #TheResistance #GeeksResist

Be safe out there /end
