I don't use Twitter myself, so I don't know much about it. But my wife likes to keep up on celebrity gossip, and so she decided to check on Gene Simmon's tweets.

She kept getting a pop up on the twitter.com site, asking about using extra disk space, or something along those lines (she can't remember what exactly it was asking). She kept clicking no, until a little while ago, when she accidentally clicked yes.

Does anyone have any idea what this pop-up was? I can't find anything about it, and I can't get it to come back. We're just trying to figure out what she agreed to.

Do you know where children get all of their energy? - They suck it right out of their parents!

Sounds like malware to me.

Don't use the website. Switch to the native Twitter app. Much better.

Yeah, sounds like a spam popup or something. I rarely use the website as I opt for apps like Kieran suggested, but when I do there's never any popups. Sounds fishy.
