We start with a Twitter warning to tell you about yet again. It’s nothing that we haven’t seen before but it should be dually noted that many Twitter users this morning have reported being attacked with direct messages and replies which say “This You??” followed by a link. If the link is clicked, a page which looks like the twitter log in page will appear. However the site is not twitter and is just a way to steal your user name and password. As always if you feel as if your account is in jeopardy change your password immediately.
You’ll soon be able to use your Twitter account on Yahoo! On Tuesday, Yahoo & Twitter announced a partnership which would allow Twitter users to not only update their status from one of many Yahoo pages, but also get updates from their friends as well. Yahoo will also integrate live Twitter searches onto the site and will use tweets to improve relevancy, freshness and search results, as well as “drive deeper user engagement.” Many of the features should be available within the next 24 hours.
