The social network disclosed the issue in a blog post and series of Tweets, saying it had resolved the problem and an internal investigation had found no Indication Passwords were stolen or misused by insiders. Still, it urged all users to consider changing their passwords.

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

Twitter’s account stated, “We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone. As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password.”
