Over the weekend, we were informed through Twitter that some users received spam to their email accounts specifically used for the TeamSeesmic newsletter. After working directly with certain users – collecting and assessing the information – we contacted our email newsletter provider, Aweber, to help us investigate and address this issue.
Yesterday, Aweber released this statement on their blog:
In essence, Aweber was a victim of vulnerabilities, and the issue was limited to areas where subscriber email addresses were stored for all their clients.
We're still working with Aweber to get as much detailed information as we can to help us understand the situation, including if and/or how you are specifically impacted. Other items to point out:
- Aweber has assured us that the vulnerabilities have been closed.
- While many other companies were affected, for Seesmic related issues, this is impacting only email addresses signed up for the TeamSeesmic newsletter.
- Our TeamSeesmic community site is separate from the newsletter and not impacted by this incident.
- All of our Seesmic products are completely separate and not impacted at all.
- We are assessing this situation very closely including potential alternative email solutions.
If you have received spam because of this incident, we sincerely apologize that this has happened. Our trust with you is the most important part of our relationship in trying to deliver the best products and services to you. We're very upset about this incident, especially since we try to be as diligent about our own approach to spam on Twitter. We will continue to follow up to get more information for you and will do our best to regain your trust as we work together, continuing to provide the best products for you. If anything, we’ll try to work even harder.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Community Evangelist, John Yamasaki, at yama [at] seesmic [dot] com, and he will do his best to work with you to address any concerns you have.
If there are questions or concerns that he is unable to answer, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at loic [at] seesmic [dot] com.

Here is some of the latest news:
Support for BlackBerry OS 4.5
We now have a version for our older models with OS 4.5. This covers older model BlackBerry devices with all the same features.
Now you can use our standardized set of keyboard shortcuts to easily
navigate and manage your messages. Here are just a small example of
- T (for top) – brings you to the top of the messages
- B (for bottom) – brings you to the bottom of the messages
- R (reply) – reply to your message
- L (reply To all) – reply to all the usernames in the message
More keyboard shortcuts can be found here:
Auto-correction and Spellcheck
We've incorporated the
BlackBerry standard for auto-correcting your messages (ex. "i" converts
to "I"), as well as pressing the action button to produce a dropdown of
suggested corrective words.
Thanks to your feedback, we've modified our notification system, so the
Seesmic icon will only show upon new replies and messages.
We've added the ability to favorite a tweet within your timeline. We'll work to have a Favorites view in a future release.
Font Size Selections
Choose different sizes to your liking of small, medium, and large in our settings menu to best read your tweets.
