Twitter revealed that roughly a quarter million accounts have been compromised by hackers.
You may not have heard, but roughly 250,000 Twitter accounts may have been compromised by hackers. There's a theory that -- if you read between the lines -- Twitter is implying the Chinese are to blame for compromising their security.
Twitter revealed that roughly a quarter million accounts may have been compromised by hackers in a blog post Friday evening. (A classic Friday evening news dump if there ever was one; they got a $10 billion valuation the same day.)
Bandits might have made away with "usernames, email addresses, session tokens and encrypted/salted versions of passwords – for approximately 250,000 users." They think. A Twitter representative stressed to the Verge that they're still investigating; there's a chance we're all safe.
