TwitViewer Looks Like a Phishing Scam
TwitViewer promises to show you who's visiting your Twitter account. Leaving aside for the moment how it would get to admin-level logs, it looks as though TwitViewer is fake: either a phishing scam to lure twits into forking over their credentials, or just a fake app which spits out nonsense. Mashable took it for a disastrous test-drive...
The app also automatically tweets out the “want to know whos stalking you?” message (and yes, the message itself is spelled wrong).
Caveat twittor. The site is registered through a proxy service, which is like giving your credit card number to a shop that's set up in the back of a van with its engine running.
The site, whose domain was registered today through an Arizona proxy service, promises a photo-gallery-like display of the last 200 people that came to your Twitter page. The cost for this service? Nothing, save for your Twitter user name and password. The catch? You just gave up your Twitter authentication credentials to a site you know nothing about.
If you already signed up for this thing, go ahead and change your password.
