On Thursday May 3rd (local time), Twitter urged its 336 million worldwide users to change their passwords.

According to Reuters and CNN Money, Twitter found a bug where the user’s passwords became stored in the internal computer log without encryption. “We are very sorry that this happened,” a Twitter blog said. 

Twitter’s Chief Executive (CEO) Jack Dorsey said that the bug was fixed and that there were no indications of a breach or misuse by anyone. He later added, “As a precaution, consider changing your (Twitter) password on all services where you have used this password.” 

Twitter declined to reveal how many passwords were actually affected by the problem, but one official said that a significant number of passwords were exposed for several months.  

The official added that Twitter found the bug several weeks ago and reported it to several authorities. 

The disclosure comes amid a series of personal information leaks on Facebook, Uber, and Equifax, which are raising voices around the world calling for enhanced information protection and management.
