Subject: Important notice about Zendesk and Twitter Help Center
Twitter along with a
of other companies uses a customer support portal called Zendesk.
about a significant security breach. In order to ensure those who may
be impacted by this breach are notified as quickly as possible, we are sending
this notification to all email addresses, including this one, that we believe
could have been involved.
Zendesk's breach did not result in the exposure of information such
as Twitter account passwords. It may, however, have included contact information
you provided when submitting a support request such as an email, phone number,
or Twitter username. Further information about the breach can be
in their blog post.
We do not believe you need to take any action at this time but wanted to
ensure that you were notified of this incident.
