In a blog post expelled by a amicable media company, it was suggested that a bug had been identified that caused a cue hashing routine (which replaces your cue with a pointless fibre of letters and numbers) to fail, withdrawal a unmasked passwords of a users stored in an inner log. 

According to Twitter, a bug has now been fixed, and an inner review has suggested “no denote of crack or injustice by anyone”.

On a side of caution

That said, Twitter has urged a users to error on a protected side, saying that “out of an contentment of caution, we ask that we cruise changing your cue on all services where you’ve used this password.”

Enabling login verification in your Twitter settings is also recommended, as it prevents anyone from logging in to your comment from a new device but a corroboration formula (which is sent to your phone).

We also suggest that we cruise regulating a password manager and generator, as it will automatically emanate a singular and exceptionally-strong cue for any one of your accounts.
