While Carolyn Penner, a spokeswoman for Twitter, told Reuters there had not been a security breach, a number of users said they believe their accounts had been hacked.

Use better passwords.

Posting in your name sounds bad enough to me.

Wow that's surprising.

Nah, not really.

I don't expect any database somehow connected to the internet to be remotely safe anymore nowadays.

I've gone almost completely password manager as opposed to rememberable passwords.

If I can't log on somewhere else because I frankly don't know jacksh*t about my password, that's something I'm willing to "risk" in return for knowing my identity is quite a bit safer.

I have a password protected database on my iPhone that syncs with my Mac's keychain (all passwords I save either in programs or for websites and secure notes, built-into OS X).

Perfect solution.

I almost never use my Twitter account (other than for contests), and they reset my password.

Mine was hacked, but I literally never use it (don't even know why I had it), so I reset the password then deleted the account...

I don't even remember my original password for it, pretty sure it was my least secure password though (the one I use on multiple places that I DGAF if someone hacks it).
