Two days later and Twitter is reportedly making major security changes.
According to Wired, Twitter is testing a new two-step verification process that they'll soon roll out to users.
Users will now be asked to provide a second piece of information to verify their identity, as opposed to just a password.
The hack also prompted a New York based web developer to create ismytwitterpasswordsecure.com . The site looks similar to Twitter's login page and says "In order to help everyone out a little we've created an algorithm that will examine your password and tell you if it's secure."
But when users attempt to enter their info they are bombarded with a surprise.
The site warns "No no no no no no no no don't be an idiot!" in bold font on a bright red background. "Don't ever type your password on a site that isn't Twitter.com. Same goes for Facebook and Linked In."
It's a good, albeit brash reminder.
