Did Twitter get hacked?
I received this email to about 15 of my different twitter accounts today (and no its not a phishing link), same as if you try and log into www.Twitter.com/LiveNHLchat directly it provides you a different login page and asks you to reset your password

Twitter believes that your account may have been compromised by a website or service not associated with Twitter. We've reset your password to prevent others from accessing your account.
You'll need to create a new password for your Twitter account. You can select a new password at this link:
As always, you can also request a new password from our password-resend page: https://twitter.com/account/resend_password
Please don't reuse your old password and be sure to choose a strong password (such as one with a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols).
In general, be sure to:
- Always check that your browser's address bar is on a https://twitter.com website before entering your password. Phishing sites often look just like Twitter, so check the URL before entering your login information!
- Avoid using websites or services that promise to get you lots of followers. These sites have been known to send spam updates and damage user accounts.
- Review your approved connections on your Applications page at https://twitter.com/settings/applications. If you see any applications that you don't recognize, click the Revoke Access button.
For more information, visit our help page for hacked or compromised accounts.
