Twitter is urging its over 330 million users to change their passwords after a “bug exposed them in plain text,” according to The Verge. “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,” the company wrote in a statement. “As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password.” This applies to the native Twitter desktop site and app, as well as third-party platforms like Tweetdeck. The company says it has removed the passwords, but won’t say how many users were affected or how long it took to find the bug.
