According to reports, another twitter scam is catching people out.

Twitter 11.6 Hours Survey Scam Doing The Rounds [pcworld.in]
The scam baits people to click on a link to find out how many hours they've spent on Twitter.
Twitter users who click on the link are taken to a page which attempts to connect a rogue application called 'Time on Tweeter' with the user's Twitter account. The application instantly tweets a message from the victim's Twitter feed, claiming that they too have spent 11.6 hours on Twitter, while also directing the victim to a page which presents a revenue-generating survey on behalf of the scammers.
