Twitter is Asking all Users to Change Their Passwords Immediately

Twitter, with over 336 million monthly active users, is urging everyone on the platform to change their passwords immediately. The popular social network has been hit with a bug which makes users' passwords to be saved in plain text on an internal log, instead of being encrypted. However, it's important to note that the data is still safely stored and hasn't been leaked nor exploited.

PSA: Twitter tells all subscribers to change their passwords because of bug

Twitter Support posted a tweet suggesting that subscribers "consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password." Also, Twitter executives Jack Dorsey (COO) and Parag Agrawal (CTO) each sent out their own tweets about the bug. The former wrote, "We’ve fixed, see no indication of breach or misuse, and believe it’s important for us to be open about this internal defect." While Agrawal tweeted, "We are sharing this information to help people make an informed decision about their account security."

Twitter did not disclose the number of passwords that was discovered on the internal log. But as a precaution, it's asking all subscribers to have a new password. It is also advisable to change those on any other service if it's the same with the one you use on Twitter.
