Twitter said the bug caused the passwords to be written to an internal log before they were masked.
Agrawal urged users to consider changing their passwords on all services they had used them for, and shared some tips for firming up the security of their accounts.
The San Francisco-based social media company said it found a bug that "stored passwords unmasked in an internal log", according to a blog post from Chief Technology Officer Parag Agrawal.
Twitter has made an appeal to more that 330 million users on its platform to change their Twitter accountpassword. "This is an industry standard".
The company said it removed the non-encrypted passwords from its system, and is working to avoid such an issue happening again.
"Since this is true, we are not forcing a password reset but are presenting the information for people to make an informed decision about their account". "We are very sorry this happened", Twitter posted on its blog.
The good news is the bug has been fixed and Twitter does not believe a breach has occurred. But the detected bug stored the passwords in their original plain-text form to an "internal log".
As a result, Twitter suggested that its users change their passwords. The pop-up window contains a link to their settings page where the users can change their password.
