Twitter bug: Change your password
Twitter recently discovered a bug that compromised user passwords. Although the bug has been fixed and they claim that there was no breach or misuse, the company is still recommending for its users to change passwords as a precaution.
We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone. As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password. https://t.co/RyEDvQOTaZ
