Warning! Warning! There is a Twitter password stealing scam rocketing through the ether. Please be careful. The Clarion Content just gotten taken in and nearly had our account hijacked. The bot scam comes at your Twitter through a direct message that says, "I found a fun photo of you" or a "cool photo of you," and there is a tiny url, that one might presume to be the photo.
Watch out!!! It is not. It redirects you to a site which asks you to verify your Twitter username and password. Type that data in there: and BAM! It is stolen. The redirect from that site after you give up your username and password takes you to a generic sales site. There is no picture of you. No. No. No. Nada. Don't get duped.
