In a latest threat, many Twitter users have, reportedly, received an email purporting source as Twitter which is guiding you to enter your personal information on a partner site due to complete system upgrade. But, Beware it’s another filthy act from some miscreants who is trying to gain illegal access over your Twitter account.

Many users have reportedly received an email from [email protected] stating to omit your personal information on one of Twitter’s partner’s website. However, this email is not from Twitter.
