Twitter advises you to change your password due to glitch

Social media giant Twitter has advised all users to change their passwords after a recent internal glitch.

The internal glitch caused users’ passwords to be stored in readable text, though Twitter has since said it’s confident the information was not accessed by an outside party. Nevertheless, Twitter recommends a password change, and pronto.

“We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone,” Chief Executive Jack Dorsey said. “As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password.”

Twitter has apologised for the inconvenience. You can change your Twitter password here.
