This happened due to a bug that the company claims to have fixed now.
Twitter claims that its investigation showed that there was no evidence that any breach of the unmasked passwords occurred. However, out of an “abundance of caution,” it has adviced all users to change their [...]

The company has said that only a “single-digit” percentage of its users will get the opportunity to double their [...]
