DETROIT - Twitter sent emails to many of its users Thursday asking them to reset their passwords due to a possible security breach.
The official Twitter account began tweeting spam links that read: "$250 tweet".
"Twitter believes that your account may have been compromised by a website or service not associated with Twitter," the e-mail says. "We've reset your password to prevent others from accessing your account."
Even though this has all the earmarks of a phishing attempt, Twitter's official site is not allowing hacked users to access the account unless they reset the password.
Here's the message users are receiving:
Twitter has not confirmed the size of the hack.
