Although I joined Twitter a couple of years back, it's never held my interest. Hubby spends hours playing hashtag games there, making horrendous puns and lame jokes. If that keeps him happy, it's fine by me. This week I logged in and found I wasn't quite myself. During a spell away from Twitter, I'd turned Japanese. The avatar was still mine, but I lived in Tokyo, and couldn't begin to pronounce my new name, as it was written in Japanese. The feed was full of foreign writing and photos of oddly dressed young ladies. After changing the password, I reclaimed the account, but still have numerous brightly coloured photos and Japanese writing appearing. Guess I need to look into blocking them. What gets me is, why would anybody bother hacking an account which only has six followers? Why not just sign up for your own account in the first place? All very odd.

I never knew you could play games on twitter, other than mind games of course. I don't partake but I do see the benefit, especially contacting customer services of large companies when you want to complain. They tend to respond much quicker than writing an email, letter, or phone call. As for you turning Japanese - well It does seem strange, although I have checked out peoples profiles and found the language had changed. Maybe it's your settings? Try rebooting or whatever and opening your eyes slightly wider. It might work.
