or perhaps you weren't in whatever shard or partition was compromised.

I've received no mail. I also happened to have changed my password a few days ago to make it more mobile device-friendly ...

Did Twitter get hacked?


I received this email to about 15 of my different twitter accounts today (and no its not a phishing link), same as if you try and log into directly it provides you a different login page and asks you to reset your password

Subject: Reset your Twitter password



Twitter believes that your account may have been compromised by a website or service not associated with Twitter. We've reset your password to prevent others from accessing your account.

You'll need to create a new password for your Twitter account. You can select a new password at this link:

As always, you can also request a new password from our password-resend page:

Please don't reuse your old password and be sure to choose a strong password (such as one with a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols).

In general, be sure to:

  • Always check that your browser's address bar is on a website before entering your password. Phishing sites often look just like Twitter, so check the URL before entering your login information!
  • Avoid using websites or services that promise to get you lots of followers. These sites have been known to send spam updates and damage user accounts.
  • Review your approved connections on your Applications page at If you see any applications that you don't recognize, click the Revoke Access button.

For more information, visit our help page for hacked or compromised accounts.

Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list ([address removed])
