How to protect your Twitter account

Use ‘two-factor’ authentication. This makes it harder for bad actors to hack your account.

Quick tips: 

  1. Block trolls. It is worth checking how many tweets they have made compared to how many followers they have. If they are making 700 tweets per follower they are probably a troll. 
  2. Block the “big” Gender Ideology accounts – J Prior & K Montgomery. 
  3. Watch for being put on lists – block people who put you on lists
  4. Check who follows you, if you can (not always possible). Try not to let TRAs slip under the radar. 
  5. If you start getting piled on, lock your account. 

There are superb threads on this here:
