How long does it take to reset Twitter passwords?

Internet

The Twitter bird

I'm getting jittery without it… I haven't posted a Tweet to my Twitter profile in just under two weeks now!

Curiously I don't think I fell for any of the recent Twitter phishing exploits, just one day my Twitter account stopped accepting my password. And another curious thing; monitoring my own Twitter profile page I've noticed that nobody has sent any fake messages.

Could this be a problem with Twitter instead of a hack or something similar? I can hear you laughing from Alaska Jim! "Dang that Aussie kid and his Twitter crap!"

Twitter (and I guess FriendFeed) are nothing like the MySpace and Facebook sites out there! They're good gosh darn it! They just need a working password that's all…
