For anyone who uses Twitter, you should change your password asap.

Twitter has recommended its 336 million users change their passwords.
The company announced on Thursday it discovered a bug that saved user passwords unprotected on an internal log.

Twitter said it has since fixed the issue. Although the company said there is no evidence passwords have been leaked or misused, it is urging its users to update their passwords.

"As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you've used this password," the company tweeted.

It's not a big deal. The file was deceptively named passwords.doc.
