Social media company Twitter has advised users to change their account passwords after it was discovered that a bug resulted in user passwords being stored in an insecure manner.
In a blog post titled “Keeping your account secure,” company CTO Parag Agrawal explained that the platform utilizes software that masks user passwords, preventing anyone at the company from viewing them. But due to a bug, all user passwords were stored in plaintext in an internal log. Agarwal says that they have investigated and fixed the bug and so far have found no signs of misuse or breach of user data.

They actually don’t have to tell you. Maybe stop spreading doom porn and encourage others to fully read contracts and be helpfully a contributing member of ATS.
All you do is contradict yourself every other day and post nothing helpful. I truly believe your only reason for being here is help great a larger divide in America. And sadly it is working for the uneducated individuals.

Why would anyone defend a company for being so careless with extremely private information?
How many employees does Twitter actually have, anyways?
Are they ALL honest and trustworthy?
