Twitter Has Been Hacked: 250,000 Twitter Accounts Compromised

Security Warning!

Twitter says that approximately 250,000 users may have been affected by the hack, with the hackers gaining access to usernames, email addresses, session tokens and encrypted version of passwords. Not good.

In response to this incident the company said:

"As a precautionary security measure, we have reset passwords and revoked session tokens for these accounts. If your account was one of them, you will have recently received (or will shortly) an email from us at the address associated with your Twitter account notifying you that you will need to create a new password. Your old password will not work when you try to log in to Twitter".

We would recommend to our audiences to visit their twitter accounts and update password as soon as for better. For more information please see below video from BBC technology news.
