For over four years, private tweets can be made the most public publication by a glitch.
The security problem meant that private tweets on Twitter were sent from Android for November 3, 2014 and January 14, 2019 without the knowledge of any user.
The social media guideline said the problem was caused by changing users of their email addresses, deleting from & # 39; protection; Try your Tweets & # 39;.

Twitter states that the problem was found on January 14, but only notified users on Friday.
"We are aware of a problem in Twitter for Android that protects the & # 39; Protect Add & # 39; when your particular account changes are made", it said in a statement.
"We have informed people that we & # 39; re aware of this problem and confirmed you" Protect "Tweets" for them if it's disabled. "
Twitter has resigned for the problem, but encouraged users to check their privacy settings.
"We believe and appreciate the confidence you have in our farm, and have committed to earning confidence every day," it said.
"We're sorry that this happened and we are making a complete overview to prevent it from being found again."
