I'm having an issue with my twitter account where it follows seemingly random accounts automatically. I've changed my password, revoked access to third party apps, and checked all my computers for malware.

The only thing I can think of is maybe I have something on my iPhone. Which would be strange because I have never installed hacked/cracked apps.

Is there a way to scan my phone more any kind of malware?

Your iPhone doesn't have malware. There is currently no malware in the wild for iOS. It's likely that someone could be using the SMS interface to follow accounts or it could be Twitter having some problems.

Yes. I found this scan to be extremely useful. It's a paid service and not cheap but I guess it's worth it in your case.


























It's call brain scan.;)

Ha ha.

You should just change your Twitter password after scanning your computer for malware, OP.
