In a blog post this week, Twitter admitted that a bug had compromised user passwords by storing them in plaintext and advised all user to immediately change their login details.

The passwords had reportedly been exposed for several months, affecting a substantial number of users. However, the company assured that they are using a technology that masks the passwords created by users and no one in the company can see it.

The company also said that they have fixed the issue and there seems to be no evidence of breach or misuse.
