Twitter Password Phishing Scam

If you use Twitter, you should know that there has been a Twitter phishing scam going on, mainly through the Twittter Direct Messages, the link will say they "found neat pics of you on the Internet" or "look at this blog" or something like that.

When people click the link, it takes them to a blog that redirects to a page that looks like Twitter. People think they are re-signing in to their Twitter account, but they are actually giving their info to the scammers.

So be careful if you get any of those, just delete the DM. I alert the person I received it from that their acct may have been compromised & they should change their password. I would advise you also to change your Twitter password today, just in case.
