Twitter Fixes Password Recovery Bug

If you received an e-mail from Twitter today, I have bad news for you. If you didn't get an e-mail from Twitter or don't have a Twitter account at all, you are safe.

We recently learned about آ— and immediately fixed آ— a bug that affected our password recovery systems for about 24 hours last week. The bug had the potential to expose the email address and phone number associated with a small number of accounts (less than 10,000 active accounts). We’ve notified those account holders today, so if you weren’t notified, you weren’t affected.
