Twitter takes steps to stop malware links

Here’s some good news for Twitter users, and for organizations that have incorporated Twitter into their business models. The microblogging service has recognized the dangers presented by links sent via its direct messages (and email notifications about direct messages), and has announced that they will start routing links that are submitted to the site this way through filters designed to detect and block those that lead to web sites containing malicious code, phishing sites, etc. That’s a good start, since that appears to be how most of these attacks have been occurring, but what about links posted in regular tweets?
