Change it now ASAP.
When I opened my Twitter app yesterday I was greeted by a warning message about a recent bug on the popular social media platform. Twitter mentioned that the bug has allowed its servers to save user passwords that are unencrypted.
This means that there is a chance that someone could possibly see the user passwords that are stored in their systems. While Twitter did say that there was no evidence of the passwords being leaked, it is still advising its more than 336 million users to change their passwords as a precautionary measure.
We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone. As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password. https://t.co/RyEDvQOTaZ

Twitter has also recommended users to turn on two-factor authentication and using different passwords for every platform. If you’re having trouble managing and remembering passwords, downloading a password manager could help.
If you’re using Twitter, there’s a chance that you already got the message. If not, we strongly advise that you change your password as soon as possible.
