Popular microblogging tool Twitter has been targeted under a new phishing scheme to get your Twitter password. Several users, according to Download Squad, are reported to have received a Direct Message that includes a link to a Blogspot link claiming to be a “funny blog about you!”.

Once clicking on it, you get redirected to a fake Twitter login page that grabs your password on the blog. The Twitter team is saying that you should look at the domain name before sending your credentials to the fake login screen; but have also said that the site has been blocked by OpenDNS and Google.

According to Twitter, the site – access-logins.com – also had set up a page that was faking the Facebook’s front page.
