This worm hijacks users' accounts to send out pornographic messages.

eWeek: For the second time in less than a week, micro-blogging service Twitter had to stamp out a worm that impacted a significant number of users. This time, the attack involved a message that read "WTF" followed by a URL. Users who clicked the URL saw just a blank page, but meanwhile the worm hijacked their account and sent out a sexually explicit tweet involving goats.

Security experts say that the worm spread nearly as quickly and as broadly as the recent attacks by onMouseOver worms.
