Approximately 250,000 Twitter accounts were hacked into last week. Investigations by Twitter did not succeed in preventing the hack, but managed to reveal the damage that has been made. Accounts that were breached had their passwords reset and the incident is said to be due to a loophole in the Java system. Twitter has reassured users that the hackers had little access to user information during the period of breach.
