Twitter was awash in reports Monday morning that founder and CEO Jack Dorsey said he is planning to get rid of the social network’s ‘like’ feature “soon,” but the heart-shaped button doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. At least for now. Twitter, in a statement, said the fate of the like button, along with many other features, is being assessed as part of an ongoing look at how the company can encourage ‘healthy conversation,’ but there are no immediate plans for changes. (The company did not directly address The Telegraph’s claim about Dorsey’s statement.)
Twitter disclosed that it discovered a bug in its system for storing passwords — which left them exposed in an internal log — and its top technology exec said that “out of an abundance of caution” users should consider changing their passwords.
