What's the worst password of 2011? Twitter says "kimswedding". Too short and not strong enough, badabing.

Apologies for the social media-sourced joke. In all seriousness, the list of 2011's worst, most insecure passwords that are likely to get your accounts hacked has just been released.

You might think that in this age of online security non of us is dumb enough to use 123123 as a password, but apparently we are.
Superman, football and iloveyou are all in the top 25. As are 123123 and 1234456.

Famously, Kanye "Yeezy" West's former girlfriend Amber Rose had her Twitter password exposed as "Yeezytoldme" late last year - a lesson in not using your famous lover as security.

Most of us have heard of someone who has had their social media hacked and their Facebook profile filled with spam, so don't be a victim, avoid these:
