    Title says it all... I'm 99.99% it's a fake/scam but wanna check
    IF it IS genuine... I need a way to contact Twitter to tell them they have a HUGE cock-up in their system

    Anyway... I've been getting an Email supposingly from Twitter
    Which all seems above board but...... why do I think it's a fake/scam ???

    1) The {username} isn't one I've ever used
    2) I've recieved ~6 over a period of days, & each time the {username} is different
    3) I've never even thought of joining Twitter

    So can some one confirm if this IS what you do get from signing up to Twitter & if so HOW do I contact them (other than signing up which I don't want to do) to tell them of their mistake

    I'm guessing someone's got your email and is signing up for accounts with it for some reason.

    No chance of that ... but it IS a shame... I don't really fancy setting up another Hotmail account as I then gotta try & remember all the shops/forums etc I've signed up to using the 'old' one & change those settings
