Twitter Urges Users to Change Password

Twitter has urged its 330 million users to change their passwords after a glitch. A Twitter spokesman said an internal investigation found no indication passwords were stolen or misused by insiders but told all users to consider changing their passwords “out of an abundance of caution”. “When you set a password for your Twitter account, we use technology that masks it so no one at the company can see it,” a spokesman said. “We recently identified a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We have fixed the bug, and our investigation shows no indication of breach or misuse by anyone. “Out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password.”
