Profile Spy makes its way to Twitter

 Another large wave of twitter spam/scam is making around with twitter right now. Again its back to saying it can see who is viewing your profile if you just click on the link. At the moment it is hitting twitter hard, as I type this I have seen more then 200 new posts on twitter posted by the fake app. Once again please remember that no twitter app can tell you who is viewing your profile. If you go to the link it will try to spread the link on your twitter page, and most likely attempt to get you to take a survey so the spammers can make some cash.

The current bad app spreading around is Profile Spy. It spreads the following message:
 Wow! See who viewed your twitter with Profile Spy (Bad App Link)

 To remove this you first must go remove Profile Spy's permission to access your account in your settings. If you just delete the posts it can then just start posting again at some other time. Then go and delete all the posts it posted under your account. That will prevent your friends from clicking on it. Then finally go and change your password just to make sure you are safe.

 If you see any friends posting them make sure you inform them its a scam and to not click on any of the links. No Twitter-App can tell you who is viewing your profile.
