Link -Twitter's new initiative at strengthening its platform's security went awfully wrong on Tuesday, when the account of a renowned security researcher was suspended for posting an alleged malicious link two months ago. As it turns out, the offending message was actually a warning regarding a MySpace phishing site.
Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer at Finnish antivirus vendor F-Secure, was taken totally by surprise by a message reading, "This account is currently suspended and is being investigated due to strange activity," when he tried to log into Twitter on Tuesday. As he was later to discover, not only had his account been suspended, but all of his tweets and followers had been also removed.
