Check the top 10 Twitter tips and tricks here:

1. Use a strong password that you do not reuse on other websites.

2. Use two-factor authentication.

3. Provide your email and phone number to request a reset password link or code.

4. Be cautious of suspicious links and always make sure you are on twitter.com before you enter your login information.

5. Never give your username and password out to third parties, especially those promising to get you followers, make you money, or verify you.

6. Make sure your computer software, including your browser, is up-to-date with the most recent upgrades and anti-virus software.

7. You need to know that Twitter will never ask you to provide your password via email, Direct Message, or reply.

8. Be cautious about new and suspicious login alerts.

9. Email address update alerts: Any time the email address associated with your Twitter account is changed, Twitter will send an email notification to the previously-used email address on your account.

10. Evaluate links on Twitter: Many Twitter users post links using URL shorteners, like bit.ly or TinyURL, to create unique, shortened links that are easier to share in Tweets. However, URL shorteners can obscure the end domain, making it difficult to tell where the link goes to.
