Twitter accounts hacked

Twitter is investigating the breach of thousands of its accounts.

It is now looking into how an apparent hacker accessed 50 thousand account usernames and passwords and published them online Tuesday.

The company is downplaying the security breach, saying in a statement that about half of those login credentials were redundancies, suspended spam accounts or mismatched account information.

Twitter has about 140 million active users.

They have sent password resets to impacted accounts.
