Here are just 3 examples that I have found, and each one (according to their twitter stream) was able to correct the problem by changing their twitter password
As I use Google Chrome and Gmail, all of these direct emails landed up in my spam so I knew the some of the links in Google Chrome would be blocked and I received the Phishing warning page when did click the 1st link, and instead of bank information, it probably tricks users into providing their twitter password
Warning: Suspected phishing site!
The website at berichtenversturen.com has been reported as a “phishing” site. Phishing sites trick users into disclosing personal or financial information, often by pretending to represent trusted institutions, such as banks.
If you feel you understand the risks, you may proceed anyway.
I also like to thank Matt's twitter account @democracy101ca for acknowledging they caught the bug and blogging about it. http://democracy101.ca/2011/07/27/we-caught-a-twitter-bug-this-morning
I also commented,
My previous blog written June 5th about setting up a google alert for your name during a job search should have warned you if someone really had written bad things about you in a blog, it also adds a little humour in you mailbox when you see your obituary or that Hugo Boss has named a suit after you.
