Trusting Twitter?: Network Tells Users That Their Passwords Were Exposed

Privacy setting policies have been the obsession of social networking sites over the past couple of years. Which is why we are in shock that one of the biggest social media sites, Twitter, has somehow leaked the passwords of 330 million of it's users in a "glitch". 

But seriously? This is a rookie mistake.

Although the social networking site said that an internal investigation had not found any indication that passwords had been stolen or misused by staff on the inside, we really expected more. Indeed, Twitter is supposed to be one of the most developed social media companies in the world.

They told all users to change their passwords "out of an abundance of caution". The last thing the want is a bunch of trolls hacking into the accounts of companies that have put their trust (and money) into the site.

Not only was the number of passwords revealed "substantial", but they were exposed for "several months". What a joke.

According to Chief executive Jack Dorsey, however, the "bug" has now been fixed. It had it's hiccup, yes, and are we a bit irritated? Also yes. But we're still loving and trusting the well-established site all the same and won't stop tweeting away any time soon, leaked password or not.
