55,000 Twitter Accounts Hacked, You Should Probably Change Your Password - HotHardware

Tens of thousands of Twitter accounts have been compromised in a recent hack attack in which more than 55,000 passwords were leaked and posted to Pastebin by anonymous hackers. Most of the accounts supposedly belonged to spammers, and there were many duplicate entries, Twitter officials pointed out, but to play it safe, you should probably change your Twitter password today.

"The list of alleged accounts & passwords consists of more than 20,000 duplicates. Also suspended spam accounts & incorrect login credentials," Twitter stated in a tweet.
