Apparently there are 55 million Twoo users worldwide. How could it be, therefore, that until last night I'd never even heard of it. When I got up just after 0530 this morning I wished very fervently that I was still in a state of blissful ignorance.
As it was I spent the first 3 hours of this dreich morning in a damage limitation exercise.
I had assumed that the contact list in my computer had been compromised but in fact I've now discovered that Twoo actually had access to the contacts in one of my Google accounts: the one from which the email was sent and only one, ironically, that had any contacts in it because I had previously deleted and ceased to store contacts in the other Google accounts.
How did it all arise? I received an invitation from someone I know to join them and, being curious at that moment, instead of just declining as I usually do for social networking sites (except Facebook), I decided to see what it was. To quote the line from one of my favourite scenes in any movie "Big mistake. Big. Huge."
Well I won't make that one again.
Doubtless, though, I'll find some other mistakes to make. Life's like that.
