If you or your clients ran Twitter ads to promote your accounting firm your data may have been compromised in the latest breach involving Twitter. (Here’s the news item from Tech Crunch).
Twitter has issued an apology and emailed all of their business clients after a data breach was discovered yesterday. Users were unaware of the possibility that personal data that was stored in their web browsers cache could be stolen by cyber criminals.

The data included:

  • email addresses
  • phone numbers
  • last four digits of credit card numbers. 

The tech giant says there is no evidence that additional billing information was compromised however they can’t be sure. It’s not clear yet how many businesses were affected or the true magnitude of data was stolen.
