Increase local storage? iPhone message

The other day I was on my Safari browser on my iPhone 4 looking over a Twitter profile when a dialogue box popped up asking: “Increase local storage?

Someone is saying bad things…

I just got another one of these urgent, life-altering, panic-stricken email notifications from one of my followers on Twitter. Dang, not again. Why all the hate? It’s all a scam.
