Twitter Warns Users: Change Your Password Right Now

TechCrunch reports:

Yes, it’s that time again — password changing time. On Thursday, Twitter revealed that a bug caused the platform to store user passwords in unmasked form. Normally, sensitive personal data like passwords would be stored in hashed form using a mix of letters and numbers to protect the content of the password itself. In this instance, it sounds like plain text passwords were stored openly without any hashing on Twitter’s internal logs.
