Examples of phishing scams I have seen include "somebody wrote something about you in this blog here (insert phishing link)":
"This you???? (insert phishing link)":
- A third party Twitter application not using OAuth failed to protect your log-in credentials. *OAuth is a technology that allows you to log-in into a third party Twitter application without giving the third party application your Twitter password.
- You were fooled by a phishing scam; phishing links use the same tiny URL redirects that are used for many links on Twitter.
- Your password was weak and was guessed by a hacker or hacker software.
I can't remember the last time I received a phishing scam message from Twitter so they must be doing a better job combating scams.
