Forum ID hack attempt

Yesterday I signed up to the MSE Forum to enable me to post a comment on energy costs.
Today I had two attempts to get me to authorise access to a Twitter account using the ID name I had used for the MSE Forum. 
Fortunately I don't use this ID for anything else so the Twitter account doesn't exist but worth noting that one should always adopt unique site specific IDs/Account names so as to avoid being hacked on other sites  or having your ID hijacked etc.
