Someone's posting this hilarious photo of you all over twitter ;-(

Hang on... You clicked on this link? Please tell me you clicked on it because you knew I was taking an ironic swipe at the people who click on spammy links.

It wasn't because you thought someone was posting an hilarious photo of you all over Twitter, right?

Right?

For those of you still getting duped by this kind of con, currently filling my Twitter and Facebook inboxes with similar messages to the one above, here are some tips on how to avoid them.

1. Unsolicited messages from people promising to show you photos of yourself that are being shared across the web, or photos of naked women, are not real. Do not click on the link and, if you do, do not install anything or enter your password anywhere.

Oh, that's it.

Bonus tip: That naked woman who wants to be your friend on Twitter is actually a man who wants your Twitter password.

Thanks for listening. Good luck out there!
