In what appears to be a major leak for a while now, 32 million Twitter accounts may have been compromised. TechCrunch reported the incident and the news comes from a rather unusual source that lets you download such data and even lets you remove yourself from the listing for free.

The website that seems to be making the most off it is LeakedSource. The site reported the same in a blog post stating that it received a copy of the leaked data from a user called “Tessa88@exploit.im,”. Turns out this is the same individual who also hacked data from VK, a Russian social networking website, just a week ago.

The data as of now is clearly being traded on the dark web, so now would be a good time to change your Twitter password.

The same source claims that about 32,888,300 records that contain email addresses, usernames and passwords have been leaked. If you do happen to be one of those users, you can head to the website and simply pull out your name from the listing for free.

The latest news from the Twitter hack points out that LeakedSource was contacted by Twitter immediately and states that the situation is under control
