Twitter asks users to Reset Passwords, suspecting hacking of accounts

If you are a Twitter user, to be on the safe side, you may want to change your password! Suspecting that there may have been instances of several of its users accounts being hacked, Twitter has reset the passwords of many accounts and sent an email letting the account owner know this has happened along with information about creating a new password.

If you find that you are unable to login to your Twitter account, maybe your password has been reset!

…In instances when we believe an account may have been compromised, we reset the password and send an email letting the account owner know this has happened along with information about creating a new password. This is a routine part of our processes to protect our users. In this case, we unintentionally reset passwords of a larger number of accounts, beyond those that we believed to have been compromised. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused, tweeted Twitter to TechCrunch.

So if you have received any email from Twitter recently, rest assured that it is real. You should type twitter.com in your browsers address bar and visit the site to change your password. If you haven’t received any email, it might be a good ide to change it, just to be on the safe side – and in any case do read this post on how to sign in securely to Twitter.
