Twitter Urges Users To Change Passwords Following Glitch

If you’re on Twitter – change your password now. That’s the word from the platform after a glitch caused some to be stored in readable text on its internal computer system.

The social network says the problem has been resolved and there's no indication that the passwords were stolen or misused, but as a precaution they still recommend that users change their passwords.

It's unclear how many passwords were affected, but a person familiar with the company says the number was "substantial" and they were exposed for "several months." Twitter has more than 330-million users.

The ironic aspect of this report? That yesterday was World Password Day.
