Twitter asks all users to change their passwords after bug
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-05-03 22:35:30

When you set a password for your Twitter account, we use technology that masks it so no one at the company can see it. 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. You can change your Twitter password anytime by going to the password settings page.

I like how the story is titled "Keeping your account secure".
