I have received several emails today "from" support@twitter.com. (Of course they really aren't from support.). We are also receiving reports from our readers that they are seeing the
same thing.    The emails claim that you have unread messages from Twitter and contain a link that you can supposedly click on to view the messages.  The links are to various
locations other than Twitter.  Don't be fooled.  The emails are not from Twitter and the links are not at Twitter.  Just a reminder NEVER click on links in emails.  Always login to your
account to check it out.  I have contacted Twitter and reported the emails. 
 

Thanks to Alex for reporting his receipt of the emails to us.
