  • Alicia Keys
  • Nicki Minaj
  • Kanye West
  • Khloe Kardashian
  • Britney Spears

(Unfortunately, most of the tweets published during the hack attack aren’t repeatable).

To avoid becoming a victim of a hack attack like those on Twitter, it’s important to have a strong, unique password, and by that BullGuard suggests:

 

  1. Make it around 12-16 characters long

  3. Use a phrase; you may be allowed spaces in your password, so craft a short sentence – this may be easier to remember
  4. Change your passwords regularly.
