Twitter has posted online that it has mistakenly reset’ed the passwords of “a large number of its registered users” of its more than 140 million active users while conducting routine security screening to identify accounts that may have been compromised.
“In instances when we believe an account may have been compromised, we reset the password and send an email letting the account owner know this has happened,”
Twitter said in its blog on Thursday.
“In this case, we unintentionally reset passwords of a larger number of accounts, beyond those that we believed to have been compromised.”
Email from Twitter was also sent to some users early Thursday morning, Eastern Time.

It was revealed in a patent filing on Thursday that Apple is exploring the use of mechanical fans in portable devices, like the iPhone and iPad, to dissipate the heat made by increasingly powerful CPUs.
The invention discovered by AppleInsider is called “Cooling system for mobile electronic devices,” and basically outlines a platform that uses a motor to drive two parts, a fan and an alert device.
It is unclear if Apple plans to use the invention in an upcoming iDevice, but it seems doubtful that such additional components can reasonably fit within the iPhone, which becomes increasingly thin with each design evolution.
The iPad would be better suited for such a system, as consumers have complained of high temperatures generated when operating the device for extended periods of time, or running CPU-intensive apps. With the new fourth-generation iPad’s switch to the Lightning connector, there is extra space within the aluminum chassis for the platform, however Apple has previously boasted that the tablet’s design does not need noisy cooling fans.
