In our ever-connected online world, cyber attacks have become one of the unfortunate realities. Today, We Heart It’s technical team discovered that we were one of several applications impacted by a hacker using connected Twitter accounts to send out falsified Tweets. This attack was reported to have begun several days ago in Australia.
Earlier today, as a precautionary measure we temporarily disabled access to We Heart It via Twitter accounts while we investigated the incident. This access has now been restored.
It appears that only a small fraction of We Heart It’s users were impacted by the “spam” hack and at this time, we have no indication that any of our users’ personal information was compromised as a result of this attack.
We sincerely regret that this incident occurred. We are working diligently, internally as well as with Twitter, to investigate the root cause and will provide further updates as more information becomes available.
If you have any questions or would like to get in contact with us, please don’t hesitate to reach out via our contact form.

Last week we asked you, our community, to dream up your ideal spring escape with us. By no surprise, we were floored with your creativity. Over 12,000 of you created collections inspired by the escape of a lifetime. Whether your motive was adventure or relaxation, location was sandy or concrete, or filled with beaches or books, we enjoyed flipping through your collections and re-hearting to a collection of our own. We were especially inspired by the bright colors of spring, white sandy beaches, road trips with amazing friends, and staying up late to catch the stars.
Check out some of the most popular collections from hearters worldwide.
Our friends also joined in on the fun and came up with collections of their own…
