There was a new game in town this week that was a total Twitter hit. It was called the Twitter Porn Name Game. The point of the game was for people in the Twitter world to let us know what their supposed porn name would be.
Now Twitter has been hit with a warning from the Canadian Government. It seems that the game in question was a scam of sorts, in which people were able to access banking information and hack into e-mail accounts. It turns out that the porn names were a combination of a first pet, first street and first teacher. Each of those components are often used as security questions in the online world.
While this sneaky game was a Twitter hit for a few days, it seems the profile has been taken down and your porn names are safe again.
