I am abit late on this one, and I am not into Twitter, and tweeting and all this business, but thought it was a worthwhile post.
Its seems that Twitter has become victim of a rather nasty worm,Â its self replicating and has been flooding the site with posts. The posts resulted in making other viewers accounts being infected, and also looking to get users to visit StalkDaily.com. Over 10,000 posts were generated by the worm, so this must have given the admins something to do over the easter weekend, I am sure they would have preferred an easter egg hunt
The general word is that people are once again concern around the security of twitter and the teams ability to respond and get ontop of these sort of security incidents.
As ever with any social sites of these type, you just need to use common sense and remain vigilant.
