“Somebody wrote something about you in this blog here” [Twitter Phish Attack]

I just got a direct message from a friend that contained this text: “Somebody wrote something about you in this blog here.”  It seems like Twitter has another phish attack on their hands that they have to deal with.  After the message is a TinyURL link which I decided not to click on because it would probably mess up my account too.  This is just a warning blog post for all you Twitter users out there.  If you see that direct message, do not click on it.  If you do click on the link, change your password immediately.
