    Tonight an update popped up on my app store for Twitter for Mac. I don't have this installed and when I click on update somebody elses account shows up, not mine.

    No I don't, everything I have is bought from the app store or a website. The Twitter for Mac is a free app.

    problem solved

    Solution that worked for me:

    Question:
    Do you have the app Transmit installed? Delete the _MASReceipt folder embedded in it.


    Answer (yes)
    well i cant find this folder _MASReceipt anywhere on my mac even when showing hidden folders ! anyone for holding my hand ?


    Solution
    Right-click on Transmit and click "show package contents".
    I just found out that deleting the folder may render Transmit inoperable, so make a back up of it before you delete the MASReceipt folder.

    Problem solved
