Twitter spam messages live on

Twitter is fantastic, its fast, its dense and its live. One thing that is really bad about twitter though, is the spam messages which may plague your personal or business profile. Messages are something to monitor in twitter as there are professionals of brands that may be contacting you for various information or collaboration. If you are a brand, people may be contacting you via messages to aks for information or support, thus messages, are not something to omit in your every-day twitter life.



Twitter recently introduced a two-factor authentication, similar to that of Google and Facebook, where you need to have either a backup code or your smartphone close, when you are trying to access twitter as only your password will not be adeuate to allow you to enter. This feature though, is not adopted by most twitter users as of this point. Also, there are twitter users that do not pay enough attention to which apps have access ot their twitter account and thus, some of those apps can be of a spammin character, using their account to send messages, tweet and more.

Most of the twitter users receive messages which contain texts like "this is an ugly picture of you" or "this user is saying bad things about you" and more, accompanyied by a shortlink which is to guide you to a malware site mostly. Most users fall victim to such messages as the text is sometimes really intriguing.

You can only make sure those messages are not being sent to your followers, only for your own account. Do do so, you must enable the two-factor verification of twitter and change your password. Do enable two-factor verification, go to your twitter settings and then "Account and Privacy". There you will see an option for login verification. To have such a feature, you must have a smartphone with the twitter native application intalled.


So its a must to prevent your account from being "hacked" and start sending curious messages to your followers, especialy if you are using your twitter account for business or professionaly.

Since 2014 AMD has been following the tradition of releasing new performance and usability features in their December driver, and 2016 was no exception. Among the myriad of new features and enhancements, was also one that passed almost unnoticed, called Radeon Chill.

Stemming from AMD's acquisition of HiAlgo earlier in 2016, it offers the possibility of huge power and thermal savings while gaming, by monitoring screen movement and adjusting the frame rate accordingly. There is even the claim that it could also reduce response times since the GPU is not occupied with rendering as often.

Its only issue: it's not global, and it's based on a white list of applications to function. But fear not, for we are here. Using a trick as old as operating systems themselves, you can try to make it work with every title. Let's see how to do that.
Step One: Activate Radeon Chill. Doing that is fairly easy. Right click on your desktop and select "Radeon Settings":
