Twitter users urged to change their passwords

"We recently identified a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log".

Parag said the bug has been fixed and an investigation showed there was no indication of breach or misuse by anyone.

To not make such mistakes again in the future, the company says, they are now implementing plans to secure the user's information including their passwords. The company did not say how many user accounts were exposed, but they did reassure that the leaked data was not misused in any way. Turning it on means even if someone does have your password, they can't access your accounts without a second piece of information, like a code texted to your phone.

Shapshak says internet users should avoid using the same password on multiple platforms.

Users receive a warning message when logging in to Twitter.

Agrawal initially wrote on Twitter that "we are sharing this information to help people make an informed decision about their account security". To enable two factor authentication, you would need to go to Account Settings Security Login verification. And if you use the same password somewhere else, you should change that one, too, just to be safe.
