REPORT : 2021 Q3

This report offers insight into large account takeovers trends that happened over the third quarter of 2021.

Note: I'll be sharing updates in this 👇 mailing list too.



Twitter had a visible bump without much root cause. I can't explain why pile-ons happen on different handles for different days. Other users may search for other "hacked" complaints and copy them(?).

Discord appears to be surging this quarter. Lots of different fraud areas - sold OG / vanity accounts, scam links, and purchases of Nitro gifts.

Facebook had a large drop in early September likely due to name change and handle changes.

Myntra appears with credit and point redemption complaints.


This is a total summary of all tweets meeting criteria.

This is a breakdown of totals per @mention which helps find outliers.
