Re: Do YOU twit ?

I've not seen anything saying that they have lost any passwords.  The news is that they discovered that they were accidentally being stored in clear text.  I've not seen anything to suggest that anyone outside of twitter have had access to them.

No losses reported, just an "oops" moment on their behalf...

 

I only started using twitter last month, so far it's a bit "meh", not really sure why people use it to be honest...

Thanks @rongtw, I'd not seen that anywhere, and it's not in the article you linked to where it actually states that they didn't think it had:

The social network said an internal investigation had found no indication passwords were stolen or misused by insiders.

Re: Do YOU twit ?

It's a place where you can post inane drivel that has no real bearing on life, kind of like a forum, but with no dedicated specific topics or genres...

@Champnet

Similar, except people follow you rather than you follow birds. Thumbs Up
