Twitter says hackers accessed direct messages of up to 36 people

Twitter on Wed. said that during the last week’s hack, attackers were able to login and send tweets from 45 of the 130 accounts that were targeted and access the direct messages of up to 36 accounts. One of the accounts that had its direct messages compromised belonged to an elected official from the Netherlands. However, Twitter did not specify which accounts were compromised, or to what degree.

WELL ! I feel safe ( because I don’t have a Twitter account). I know Twitter will take care of this in their usual, inept and ultimately “fair” fashion.

"Up to 36 accounts" Given how many twitter accounts of no-name every day people without blue checkmarks get hacked on a daily basis, this all seems... really dumb. Who TF cares? Stop usimg a garbage piblisher with garbage security and garbage policies.
