    Don't even log into your page. Someone hacked it and the minute you drag your mouse over anything something weird happens. It didn't trigger my computer's anti-virus, but it still isn't good.

    Looks fine to me. Sure it's not on your end?

    My problem was a post from somewhere was retweeted by someone on my list. Right above it was something from @Breaking_News telling me the same thing.

    Strange to find only two items on this (just googling), and both are from the UK:

    The front page of twitter is filled with posts about the problem. It's definitely real, and I'm terribly annoyed.

    See? There are advantages to being a Luddite.

    Try to access Twitter on a different interface like Hootsuite or TwitterGadget ... or on a smartphone interface like UberTwitter.

    Great...I suspect I'll see an e-mail from Mr. Publisher asking us why our Twitter feed was hacked.

    Tweetdeck works as well. A lot of college football writers got hit this morning. I follow many of them and had weird tweets in my feed. Luckily I use it on my phone and therefore, I rarely open the links.

    Can someone explain to me what is Tweetdeck and why I should have it?

    From wiki:

    "TweetDeck interfaces with Twitscoop, 12seconds and Stocktwits, all of which can appear in separate columns."

    Of course it does.
