News from our Social Media Team: we are back on Twitter

January 21, 2022
For those of you who have followed BookCrossing on Twitter, you may have noticed that there was a short period of time in November 2021, where our profile was hacked, and then disappeared altogether.
With thanks to the hawk eyes of several of our Members, who notified the BC Volunteer Support Team that things looked a little strange, we got onto Twitter HQ to report the hacking issue within a very short period of time. The unfortunate outcome of this, was that Twitter shut our account down completely, and we lost all of our account's contents. Years and years of content, Twitter have this week confirmed, is gone forever.

In summary; BookCrossing does not have an official Twitter presence, and for now, we do not intend to begin again on that platform, particularly bearing in mind that our FaceBook and Instagram social media channels are much more interactive and relevant.

Thank you.

EDITED 26 January 2022
Well, never say never. We are back on Twitter with a new account!
