    Twitter-Backgrounds.net came up as a security risk, when I tried to close the page, it would not close and a new window of it kept popping up every second. I had to restart my computer to make it stop. Just a warning. Someone might want to check it out and I wouldn’t recommend clicking the link.

    Thanks Amers383 for your concern. I did checked again twitter-backgrounds.net but found nothing unusual. I’m using firefox, maybe some browsers might react. Anyone else experiencing the same bug from that site. Please confirm so I could replace it immediately. Thank you.
