At around 5:45 pm, Nicklas Backstrom‘s Twitter account @Backstrom19 started tweeting incomprehensible links to its 90k followers at the speed of light. Take a look.
I’m going to go ahead and guess his account has been compromised.
It appears I’m not the only one who noticed.

So I know this seems obvious, but please don’t click on those long link things.
And someone who knows Nicky, please tell him to change his password.
Update: Nicky is aware.
My last tweets must have been some sort of virus.
