Twitter has recommended to its more than 330 million users to change the passwords used to access their accounts after detecting a security breach.

“We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We have fixed the bug and we have no evidence of a violation or misuse by anyone,” said the social network, which has said they “regret” what happened.

As they explained, it was the company itself that detected an error and no evidence of hacking or abuse had been found, but as a precaution, users should change their passwords, which is good advice on a periodic basis anyway.
