So did you guys here about the new twitter scam that has been going around? Well the scam goes something life this you get a direct message from someone saying something like "hey check out this blog" and then it takes you to a page that looks like the twitter login page. The user may assume that they got logged out some how and they log back in. Well it's a trick because the scammers just built a site that looks like twitter and they then log your information so they can use you twitter account and spam your friends.

This is the same kind of thing that happened to facebook a while ago. Everyone was freaked out about it. Just remember before you enter your username and password into a site make sure that the URL is exactly the same as the site you are supposed to be on. A lot of time these phising scammers will use a URL that looks similar to fool people. PEOPLE don't be fooled. Okay here is a screen shot of the phishing site, don't go there and sign-in okay, okay.
