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 www.Twitter.com/LiveNHLchat directly it provides you a different login page and asks you to reset your password

Subject: Reset your Twitter password

 

Twitter

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:
https://twitter.com/pw_rst/e/27419597/G3YoBVi_Emuhc%3D-145687352363206-user/4

As always, you can also request a new password from our password-resend page: https://twitter.com/account/resend_password

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 https://twitter.com 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 https://twitter.com/settings/applications. 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.
