Twitter has just released a warning that they have discovered a Twitter-look-alike website that is in fact a phishing site aiming to gain access to your Twitter account. According to Twitter, if you have received an email informing that you have a ‘direct message’ and you are required to log in to your Twitter account, take a good look at the URL that came in the email.
The best, like I said, is to go to whatever website directly from your web browser and not log in by clicking on links that are in emails, even if you may know the sender. I know, it’s convenient but it’s risky as well.
Twitter also reminds us to change our Twitter account password if we felt that our login credentials have been compromised. Actually, we should always change our password to all important websites. Sigh… I am lazy as well!
