This is not first time I have received spam messages from Twitter. Just now I checked my twitter account and what I see is two Direct Message saying "Bad blog going around about you, have you read it yet?" followed by a URL shortened with twitter shortener.

I just Visit That Link and Found that, its a Phishing Page of twitter. Its Looks almost 99% Similar to Original Twitter Login page. I am sure that 70% of people who receiving this spam may get confused and will fall in trap of spammer by providing their Login details on phishing page.
