Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) Reports Bug

Twitter (TWTR – Free Report) recently announced that the company found a bug, the second time this year, which may have exposed customers’ direct messages and personal tweets to unauthorized developers.

Notably, in May this year, the company advised users to change their passwords after Twitter found a bug that was storing users’ passwords in an unencrypted format.

Shares of Twitter gained 18.7%, underperforming the industry’s rise of 21.7% after the company announced the news.

Twitter in its statement revealed that less than 1% of the people were affected. With 335 million monthly average users (MAUs) in second-quarter 2018, at least 3.4 million must have been affected.

Moreover, Twitter came under further scrutiny by Brazil’s top electoral court after 16 users openly celebrated the “near-fatal assassination attempt on presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro.”

Reportedly, Twitter will be fined $12,345 for the company’s delay to hand over the data of the 16 users, per TechCrunch.
