Google Malware Checker Gets Twitchy With TwitPic

TheNextWeb reports a bit of a faux pas with Google's malware checker, which attempts to check for and block sites that may serve up malware to unsuspecting web users - a noble aspiration. However, sometimes things go awry with these automated services, and that seems to be the case here with TwitPic, a photo sharing site.

...if you try to access the site from from any browser, you’ll get a malware warning. Furthermore, if you use Google Chrome, pages as well as Twitter pages that rely on the service will result in a blocking prompt as well.
