Twitter urging every user to change password after glitch

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'.
