Fake Twitter Site

I was going to Twitter tonight and forgot to type in the second ‘t’ (twiter instead of twitter). Took me to a site that looks almost like Twitter, but with a survey popup instead:

It looks like its a survey site looking to gain access to email addresses. They made the site look legit enough to make a lot of people probably think its really Twitter interested in a user’s input, but it’s not. After you answer 3 simple questions, you’re asked what you’d like to be entered to win (iPad 2, Victoria’s Secret Gift Card, or $1,000 Gift Card). Obviously you’re not going to win anything, but the site owner will certainly take your email address and sell it to make a tidy profit. Users beware.
