Ugh. Yes, the title just about says it all. It appears that since 11:35PM on Thursday, April 10, 2014, my Twitter handle was hijacked. The person who has been incessantly tweeting inane nonsense from my @skin_and_tonics account for the past 20 hours is NOT me. I have no idea who that person is, or if it is even a real person. Please unfollow @skin_and_tonics, unless you enjoy angsty teen-style tweet spam.

Unfortunately, this person did a really thorough job stealing this account – they changed the email contact as well. I’ve contacted Twitter support, but they don’t seem to share the same sense of urgency I have about the situation. I do not have very much faith that this matter will be resolved in a timely fashion, if at all, so I am setting up a new Twitter account for Skin & Tonics. I would love it if you would all continue to follow me there!

My new account is: @skinandtonicsKT

I hope you’ll join me there! I’m terribly sorry for the inconvenience, and the past 20 hours of angsty-teen-spambot-spew.
