Some users are noticing that tweets they did not write are showing up in their feeds.

PC Magazine: A number of Twitter users have noticed that tweets they did not write are showing up in their Twitter feeds. The tweets contain links, often goo.gl links that end with "m28sx.html," that connect to sites offering what appears to be anti-virus software but is really malicious code.

Twitter says it is working to reset passwords on affected accounts, but in the meantime, security experts say that those who notice these links in their tweets should go ahead and change their passwords on their own.
