Twitter the Game Changer: How it All Started?

Elements of a Good Startup

What Are the Elements That Make a Startup Successful?

We all know Twitter as one of today’s most successful tech companies with over 500 million total users with more than 200 million active users (source). However, we know very little about how did it all started and what challenges did the founders have to face in order to get to where the company currently is.

Elements of a Good Startup

To be a successful startup, you need two things.
You need great founders and you need great opportunity.

Facebook friend and top videographer and video blogger, Steve Garfield, shared the following video from Bloomberg profiling the Twitter founders Ev Williams, Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey. It’s an interesting video that entails the many challenges which Twitter has experienced which many startup companies can take inspiration and learn from. Watch the video below.

Twitter Hacked: 250,000 Accounts Compromised

Twitter Accounts Hacking

250,000 Twitter Accounts Hacked

In a recent blog post by Bob Lord (@boblord), the Director of Information Security for Twitter, said that in the latest online attack, hackers may have gained access to information on a quarter of a million of its more than 200 million active users.

Twitter Accounts Hacking

 

This week, we detected unusual access patterns that led to us identifying unauthorized access attempts to Twitter user data. We discovered one live attack and were able to shut it down in process moments later. However, our investigation has thus far indicated that the attackers may have had access to limited user information – usernames, email addresses, session tokens and encrypted/salted versions of passwords – for approximately 250,000 users.

As a precautionary security measure, we have reset passwords and revoked session tokens for these accounts. If your account was one of them, you will have recently received (or will shortly) an email from us at the address associated with your Twitter account notifying you that you will need to create a new password. Your old password will not work when you try to log in to Twitter.

In an email affected users received, Twitter wrote that it “believes that your account may have been compromised by a website or service not associated with Twitter. We’ve reset your password to prevent others from accessing your account.”

Many people are speculating on Twitter that the affected accounts are all among the service’s earliest — in other words, that they were accounts created in 2006 or 2007, since only accounts that old seem to have received the notice from Twitter. It appears that the hackers behind the attacks had not targeted any specific group, like political dissidents or media organizations.

This attack was not the work of amateurs, and we do not believe it was an isolated incident. The attackers were extremely sophisticated, and we believe other companies and organizations have also been recently similarly attacked. For that reason we felt that it was important to publicize this attack while we still gather information, and we are helping government and federal law enforcement in their effort to find and prosecute these attackers to make the Internet safer for all users.
