However, the social media company said that they have not found any sign that hackers have accessed any kind of data, but for safety, they urged everyone to change their passwords.
“Due to a bug, passwords were written to an internal log before completing the hashing process,” a Twitter spokesperson said. “We found this error ourselves, removed the passwords, and are implementing plans to prevent this bug from happening again.”
Twitter did not reveal how many passwords were exposed or how long the glitch made data vulnerable to snooping.
“Our investigation shows no indication of breach or misuse by anyone,” Twitter said.
