Merely 235 million Twitter accounts data have been reportedly leaked and touted on online hackers’ stage for $2 to download. Since July 2022, Unknown technocrats and data breach gatherers have been presumably focusing on a united number to sell users’ data, including private and public data.

The same has reported earlier today on the platform; researchers at Privacy Affairs explained that the leak contains accounts names, followers’ data, counts, email addresses, and handles; those stolen data would be wired to link all unpredictable people across the globe, the data could be used to masquerade or grind users Twitter accounts.

A few reports say this could cause serious risk for innominate journalists or freethinkers. Data breach collectors handily steal the personal information of users who didn’t protect their accounts with two-factor authentication and are more vulnerable to this kind of infringement. In contrast, users who sheltered their accounts with authentication could have the possibility of jumping the fence.

The reports from a few sources reported that the data consisted in 2022 via a proneness that the company had eventually identified in August 2022. The leak comes from the same hacker who claimed to have acquired private data from 400 million Twitter accounts and asked ransom amount of $200,000 to burn out the files.

Meanwhile, a team of Irish regulators has been set up to investigate the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation data breach. Twitter has now opened its gates for cyberattacks and is left miserable to protect its users from the odds. Mayhaps, three-quarters of its staff has been laid off since Musk took over the company, and it could be a ground cause for these undetectable data breaches.

The company should build a robust firewall to avoid outlaws.
