Twitter urging every user to change password after glitch

Twitter House at SXSW 2018

The company explained that the internal log on which passwords were stored was contained within their systems and no passwords had been compromised.

Twitter discovered the glitch and did not find any "breach or misuse by anyone", the company said in a blog post. Twitter wants you to change your password on the site itself, and anywhere else that you've used that password, including third-party Twitter apps.

Twitter's 330 million users are being urged to change their passwords after some were exposed in plain text on its internal network.

The recently discovered bug, however, left an undisclosed number of users' passwords stored unmasked in the internal system - meaning they were written in plain text. Still, they urged users to change their passwords as a precaution.

'We found this error ourselves, removed the passwords, and are implementing plans to prevent this bug from happening again'.

We will take the company's word on the matter, but yeah you should definitely change your password regardless of any reassurances they give.

Unlike recent data breaches like those at Target or Equifax, the Twitter snafu wouldn't expose your personal information.

Twitter CTO Parag Agrawal tweeted an apology for the issue, adding: "We are sharing this information to help people make an informed decision about their account security".

"We recognise and appreciate the trust you place in us, and are committed to earning that trust every day".
