Twitter virus created havoc, hampering the working of millions of Twitter accounts and spreading like a fire in the woods on Tuesday morning.
Before the site was able to fix the problem, a sneaky new kind of Twitter virus opened various unauthorized pop-up windows.
However, later during the day, Twitter said on its safety feed site that the problem, which was a technical one, has been patched up since 10 a.m. and Twitter is working smoothly now with the same pace as before.
It also stated that user information did not get compromised during the attack of the virus.
The Twitter virus was the shortest on record and affected only visitors to Twitter.com. It did not have any effect on Twitter applications like TwitterBerry, TweetDeck or others.
According to one Twitter user, as he logged into his Twitter account, it started sending multiple messages and receiving many more from unknown Twitter accounts.
