My Twitter account is... LOCKED?

I just watched an episode of Digg Nation a little while ago and found out that one of the hosts, specifically Alex Albrecht, had to change his multitudes of G-Mail passwords because he was sent a warning by his G-Mail widget/extension thingy notifying him to change his password. The host would go on to say that Google might have leaked a seemingly select number of user names and passwords to the entire web (just like how the juggernaut also made private voicemails appear in public Google search results). I say "select number of user names and passwords" because co-host Kevin Rose didn't report any suspicious activity on his account, but proceeded to change his password anyway.

So to be safe, I changed my password as well. Hell, I changed the passwords of all the primary websites I log into, and since Tweetie 2 for the iPhone and iPod touch doesn't allow the alteration of a password from the app itself, I had to resort to using the computer instead (come to think of it, I could've used mobile Safari... D'oh!). But anyway, I changed my password, logged out, and tried to log back in with the new password.

For some reason, Twitter wants me to "chillax" because it temporarily locked down my account.

Ahhhh great.
