Twitter, however, stated that their system was not compromised. Explaining the breach, Twitter said, “The phone number associated with the account was compromised due to a security oversight by the mobile provider. This allowed an unauthorized person to compose and send tweets via text message from the phone number. That issue is now resolved.”
The account is now secure, and there is no indication that Twitter’s systems have been compromised.
