Twitter has just informed their business clients of a potential data breach include phone numbers, email addresses, and card numbers that may have been exposed by hackers. Billing information viewed on Twitter Ads or Twitter Analytics may have been exposed in the browser’s cache.
The social media platform first became aware of the occurrence on May 20, stating it took immediate action to notify affected customers. However, this isn’t the first time data breaches have happened on the website. A month prior to this incident, Twitter alerted its users that private information may have been stored in their Firefox browser’s cache.
“This means that if you accessed Twitter from a shared or public computer via Mozilla Firefox and took actions like downloading your Twitter data archive or sending or receiving media via Direct Message, this information may have been stored in the browser’s cache even after you logged out of Twitter.” the company stated.
