Yeah, these days a Twitter handle is a valuable property worth protecting.

You lose it and there go your years of hard work of gathering followers and probably bracing yourself for screenshots of all the nasty things you have been doing in the DMs.

This is why telling you this isn’t just about Kuulpeeps keeping you informed, this us trying to save your life!

See, Twitter has warned its 330 million users to change their passwords after a glitch exposed some in plain text on its internal network.

Twitter, Password

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

However, it still urged all users to consider changing their passwords “out of an abundance of caution”.

As well as changing passwords, users have been advised to turn on two-factor authentication service to help stop accounts being hacked.

Keep your account save, people…
