My Twitter account was hacked and I want to run a virus scan, but I don't know how to do that. Can anyone tell me?

That will be pretty useless anyway, because hacks like your Twitter hack have nothing to do with your computer.
And, OS does NOT have virus. It has Trojans, but they are only found on shady software/movies.

But, since you ask. Use this, and do not give other virus scammer companies your money.
