1. Strong Password can always help you from intruders. Passwords that contain letters (in caps as well as in small case) and numbers and special symbols are considered to be very strong. Twitter displays the password strength on the right hand side of the password. You can use it to check whether your password is strong enough. Another good technique would be to change your password regularly.

2. Watch out for suspicious links, and always make sure you’re on Twitter.com before you enter your login information.

3. Use HTTPS for improved security.

4. Don't give your username and password out to interested third-parties, especially those promising to get your followers or make you money.

5. Make sure your computer and operating system is up-to-date with the most recent patches, upgrades, and anti-virus software.
