My twitter account was hacked this weekend, as those of you who follow me know.  I still can't figure out how it happened--my password was not any of the obvious, and the only application that had access to my account was Tweetdeck.  


I wasn't the only one--hundreds of accounts were hacked, including tech luminary John Dvorak.  This mitigates against a brute force attack on passwords--but then what's left?  Is Tweetdeck compromised?

Welcome to the future, I guess.
