    Happened to me too. But seems to be ok now. Works good but if I go to (the guy it retweeted for you):
    Code:
    http://twitter.com/tbubbaloo
    it goes crazy again.

    Edit: Just did it again.

    Yes, it's a security flaw that works with a mouseover script, so if you get a block of color in your timeline DON'T move your mouse over it, you will retweet it instantly, may get a pop up or be directed to porn sites.
    The best thing right now to do is to either not use Twitter or use third-party applications like TweetDeck since they don't seem to be affected by this bug.
