Default Twitter was hacked?

Sorry, it's not directly UB40 related, but since BT is on Twitter, I thought some of you may have come across the same problem I'm having...

Today I received two "strange" personal messages -- one, containing a link to a strange web site, from an old friend of mine, and I have reasons to believe that it was a "hacked" message... And second -- from Brian saying that I had sent him a message with a link to a "phishing" site (I hadn't).

I was wondering if anyone else is having similar problems?

Ahhh...that makes sense...I didn't for a minute think you had sent that but wanted to let you know...Its a sad fact of life that here are a lot of untrustworthy people on the net, constantly looking for ways to screw people either for profit or simply to just make their lives suck...Anyway, I trust your life is good in Arizona ? Can you send us a bit of Sunshine?

Life is good, but busy... Still chasing my almost-two-year-old around all day long, no time to post, or tweet

The weather's been nice and warm here -- mid 20s Celsius for high... Come on over!!... bring frinds
