Twitter apologises for business data breach
Twitter has sent an email to its corporate customers to inform them that personal information may have been compromised.
Unbeknownst to users, some client’s billing information has been cached in the browser.
In an email to his customers, Twitter said it was “possible” that others could access personal information.
Personal data includes email addresses, telephone numbers and the last four digits of customers’ credit card numbers.
The tech company claims there is no evidence that customer billing information has been compromised.
The violation affects companies that use Twitter’s advertising and analytics platforms.
It is not yet clear how many companies have been affected.
The company said it became aware of the problem on May 20 and has since resolved the problem.
In an e-mail to interested users, the company said: “We are sorry that it has happened. We recognize and appreciate the trust you place in us and we are committed to earning ourselves every day.”
Non-commercial Twitter users are not believed to be affected.
It is not the first time that Twitter has been exposed to a data breach.
In 2018, the company asked its users to change their passwords after an internal loss.
