Option 1. Request a password reset.
Step 1: Reset your password by requesting an via the forgot password link on the login page.

Step 2: Choose “Hacked account” from the list of options.
Step 3: Be sure to use the email address you associated with the hacked Twitter account. Additional information and instructions will then be sent to that email address.
