Twitter warns of a hoax blocking the user account

showing "2007" as the date of birth on Twitter, you'll have access to hidden features. This is what many people want to make believe to the users of the social network since a few days. They publish tweets in which they claim that change his birth date to 2007 allows us to obtain new colors, administrators privileges, or a certified account. It is impossible to know how many users have been victims of this hoax, but the latter is widespread enough for Twitter's intervention. On Tuesday, the social network has published a warning message on its official Twitter account Support. "We have noticed that there was a hoax that was trying to encourage people to change their birthdays on Twitter on their profile for 2007 in order to unlock new colors. Please, don't do it. You will just be disconnected because you are under the age of 13 years".

the Account is blocked for non-compliance of the required age

The RGPD is presumed that a user under the age of 16 years cannot be the subject of the collection of information on the Internet without the explicit consent of his parents.

In 2006, another hoax had had disastrous consequences for the victims fallen in the panel. People on the forum 4chan urged users to delete the system directory Microsoft Windows (System32) from their computer. However, the latter is essential to the functioning of the Windows operating system. Without him, the computer was not working at all.
