Twitter Hacked!

Well, its been exploited.  Apparently there is a "bug" which allows "onMouseOver" javascript code to execute a command when your cursor passes over a particular portion of the screen.  Some commands have been launching third-party websites (including porn) and other annoying things.  Twitter has not officially recognized the security flaw. However, it is advised to not use twitter by logging into the web interface.  The "bug" apparently has no affect on twitter apps or services such as TweetDeck.  If you have a tweet with the "bug", it should be deleted by using one of the alternate methods.
