While looking into the matter, in a tweet, Twitter’s support account said: “We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter. We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly.”

The sheer number of prominent accounts compromised at the same time has made it arguably the biggest security incident in Twitter’s history.
