Users are getting a fake direct (private) Twitter message via the service similar to this one we got:

The shortened link will send users to a fake Twitter page like the one below.

The webpage address for the page has the wrong URL and has spelled wrong. The page is set-up to harvest usernames and passwords.

If you think you may have entered your username and password into this page please go to the real Twitter webpage at and change your password immediately.

Many people use the same password for multiple accounts online and may thus make these other accounts vulnerable to unauthorized access.
