    Should it be detecting such sites?

    If so, it is missing PrevxHelp - removed the link text just to ensure no one accidentally gets infected

    twitter is such a spam hole for this sort of spam

    should add that at the moment, only websense threatseeker is correctly identifying it as phishing.

    how / why was websense able to beat you to it?

    shouldn't you guys be more proactive about this sort of thing since twitter is now a magnet for malware/phishing links?

    thanks
