The folks at Twitter say about 250,000 (!) accounts may have been affected and the information leaked could include usernames, emails, and even encrypted passwords.  This is a serious hack.

Twitter discovered the hack this week, and were able to shut down one attack as it happened.

“As a precautionary security measure, we have reset passwords and revoked session tokens for these accounts. If your account was one of them, you will have recently received (or will shortly) an email from us at the address associated with your Twitter account notifying you that you will need to create a new password. Your old password will not work when you try to log in to Twitter.”

Check out your account, get a stronger password, and learn that, in this connected age, nothing is truly safe.
