Phishing for account information via twitter has been dubbed "twishing".

Thank you for the comment! The convention of changing the first consonant in "phishing" to indicate different technologies doesn't stop there. In our most recent issue of Catalyst ( http://www.ncpc.org/publications/catalyst-2009/volume-30-number-1 ), we describe "Vishing," or Voice Phishing, using VoIP as the means to scam people.
