Twitter admits to a “security incident” involving Tweet Circles

Twitter admits to a "security incident" involving Circles thumbnail tweets

A flaw in the Twitter security made them come some tweets made public which should not have been seen except by the closest friends of the poster (these are the tweet circles). The company itself admitted to the privacy issue after weeks of silence.

For the uninitiated, the Circles feature allows users to create an exclusive list of friends and post tweets that only they can read. A functionality similar to Instagram’s “close friends”.which allows users to share stories with only specific users.

In an email to affected users seen by the Guardian, Twitter admitted the tweets had been leaked and made public. “A security incident that occurred earlier this year,” reads the email taken up by the Guardian, “may have allowed users outside your Twitter Circle to see your tweets.”

For weeks, users reported that the tweets in question were getting likes and views from accounts that shouldn’t even have seen them. Twitter, whose security office has largely been taken out of control by Musk’s management, he had not officially acknowledged the problem. At least until today.

However, the email, the Guardian always reports, does not address another problem reported by users: the likes received from strangers on private profiles.
