DPW Twitter Account Compromised

On July 26, 2013 the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works (DPW) Twitter account @AACoDPW was compromised.  A few unwanted spam postings appeared and unwarranted direct messages were sent.  If you received any inbox messages from @AACoDPW without a specific subject or name attached, PLEASE DO NOT OPEN and DELETE immediately.  


DPW apologizes for any confusion this may have caused and appreciates all the followers that alerted us to this problem.  We are working to correct this problem to ensure it doesn’t happen again.  If @AACoDPW ever sends you a message, it will have a specific specific subject and a name attached.


We will continue to use social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to communicate important news and other noteworthy information to our customers. 


Please read the mportant information below regarding social media from the Anne Arundel County Police Department:


Change your passwords frequently and be sure that they are something complex. In addition, NEVER open emails or direct messages from unknown sources or where the message appears to be suspicious or unexpected. These types of short messages, like “Look at this picture of you” “How is this possible” etc… are telltale signs of bad links.
