If you are Twitter, then you must have known about the onMouseOver issue, which shook the Twitter.com. And later it was solved by Twitter. And off course, onMouseOver was the trending topic for three to four days at a stretch.
And this helped a cool cracker to play on Twitter.com security. He worked on, and somehow managed to do so. Finally the onMouseOver occurred. And added to this, there was another problem in Twitter, some other guy who added another code that resulted in automated Retweets from other profiles. So users would have noticed some unknown retweets which was not made by them, in their profile. After all these explanations, Twitter apologized for the security issue.
