VENICE, Calif. — On Tuesday, 2018 XBIZ MILF Performer of the Year nominee Brandi Love lost her Twitter account to a hacker.
According to a rep, the hackers deleted followers, created false posts and “havoc in her life.” Love had about 500,000 followers.
“I made a decision a long time ago to be vulnerable with the fans,” Love said, “To be open, honest and accessible. I spend considerable time conversing with my followers on topics ranging from politics to sports to alternative relationships. We obviously talk about sexuality but my timeline is – or was pretty unique. This is what I love about the Twitter and Instagram platforms — they have allowed me to truly interact with my followers.
“When people take advantage of that which is most vulnerable, steal it, and then use it for nefarious means it hurts on a deeply emotional level,” she added. “I feel emotionally and psychologically violated.”
Love received her account back yesterday. Her Instagram account (@LoveTroopers) still remains hacked as of this announcement.
“From a business standpoint it's equally damaging,” she said. “I have often written about my affinity for Twitter and the tremendous business opportunities that have come to life because of my interactions there. Trapped within my DMs at the hacked account were numerous contracts, interviews, business opportunities and business contact information.
"This hack disrupted at least $20,000 worth of business in January and February, eliminated 50 percent of my social media marketing plan and consumed over 40 man hours and counting.”
