Company Data Breach History

Twitter has experienced several data breaches in the past, including a high-profile breach in 2020 that impacted over 130 users. In that breach, hackers gained access to high-profile accounts, such as those of Barack Obama and Elon Musk, and used them to promote a Bitcoin scam. This site is working with cybersecurity experts to further investigate the incident and is taking steps to strengthen its security measures in order to prevent similar breaches from occurring in the future.

Recommendations for Personal Data Protection

To protect your personal information and accounts, it is recommended that you take the following steps:

  1. Change your Twitter password: If you are using the same password for multiple accounts, change it immediately. Use a strong and unique password for each account.
  2. Enable two-factor authentication: Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your account. It requires you to enter a code sent to your mobile phone in addition to your password to access your account.
  3. Be wary of phishing emails: Hackers often use phishing emails to trick users into revealing their login credentials. Be careful when clicking on links in emails and always verify the sender’s identity before providing any personal information.

By following these best practices for cybersecurity, you can reduce the risk of data breaches and protect your personal information and accounts from cyber threats.
