Twitter users told to change passwords after internal leak

Twitter's 330 million users are being urged to change their passwords after some were exposed in plain text on its internal network.

An error in the way the passwords were handled meant some were stored in easily readable form, said Twitter.

The passwords should have been put through a procedure called "hashing" making them very difficult to read.

Security experts said the way Twitter handled the potential breach was "encouraging".

I deleted my old Twitter account when the previous password leak was announced. Never used that account though, never found Twitter useful. :P
