Hundreds of Twitter accounts were hacked with a swastika through a third party app, which means it's probably time to check on your Twitter apps.

Earlier this morning, hackers took over hundreds of Twitter accounts and posted a message in Turkish that included swastikas and a "NaziHolland" hashtag. BBC North America, Reuters Japan, Nike Spain, and Duke University's Twitter accounts were some of the targets.

A statement from Twitter revealed that the source of the hack was a third party app. The company claims users don't need to take any action, but now might be a good time to review which apps you've authenticated with your Twitter login details and revoke apps that you no longer use.

We identified an issue affecting a small number of users. Source was a 3rd party app and it has been resolved. No action needed by users.

It's *very* simple. Go to twitter.com/settings/applications and review all of the apps you've authorized.

Then, click "Revoke access" (obvs).

You can also access the Apps page by clicking your profile picture > Settings and privacy > Apps.

While you're at it, review the apps connected to your Google account.

From the link above, select Manage apps. Click on the app name and then Remove to de-authorize access.

Might as well check your Facebook log ins, too.

Hover over the app name and click the pencil to edit and the "X" to remove.
