Looks like there is a phishing scam spreading on Twitter. If you are a Twitter user you should heed the warning.

If your account has been temporarily locked you will need to send a help request to get it back. This may take some time however. There are likely hundreds of accounts affected.

Thanks for this info. There are so many souspicious activities in some social networks... It is good when someone warns you before it's too late
