Obama's Twitter Account Hacked?

Twitter blog tells us that quite a few, 32 accounts were hacked using the twitter phishing scam that we mentioned earlier. But all have been restored and our president's Twitter account is safe. By the way the president, is already working in bringing the much needed stimulus package forward. We certainly see Barak Obama!
The phishing incident has made Twitter investigate OAuth. According to Twitter blog, it is in closed beta test at the moment. But OAuth would not have prevented the phishing attack. Only us, users can prevent such things by being a bit vigilant.
