How to hack a Twitter Account Profile?

Twitter is gaining publicity very fast and there have been a lot of people looking for Twitter Hacks. “How to hack twitter accounts?” is what is a lot of people are discussing about. There are a lot of ways in which Twitter Account profiles can be hacked. Today I will show you how to hack twitter profiles from within twitter and there is nothing illegal in this method.

Hack twitter Account

I am going to talk about a Hacking trick which will make your Followers and Following Count invisible on Twitter.

Just imaging the fun if no-one is able to find how many people are you following and also the number of your followers. While playing around with the Settings inside my twitter profile, I came across the the option to “Change design colors”.

I just wanted to have some change, but mistakenly I applied the same color to the “Sidebar” and the “Text”, and was checking out the changes to my profile. I noticed that my Twitter Account Profile was Hacked in such a way that my Following, Followers and Listed count was not visible. Have a look at the Screenshot below:
twitter sidebar
I found this cool and for some more fun, I made the “Text”, “Links” and the “Sidebar” color same. Now, even the words Following, Followers and Listed was invisible and I couldn’t see anything on the sidebar. Have a look at the Screenshot below:

Remember that if someone hovers over the Twitter profile sidebar then your details will be visible, as we cannot make changes to the CSS files which twitter uses.

I will keep you updated if I find some more ways to Hack Twitter accounts. I seriously think, that its good that twitter allows these customizations, but proper measures must be takes so that they can’t be used by people for causing inconvenience to others. Note that I have reverted back the changes now any my Twitter profile (@techfreaks) is pretty user-friendly.
