Twitter data breach raises concerns about GoogleDocs

Share this content:
Last month a Twitter employee's e-mail account was hacked and the hacker used this break-in as a way to break into the employee's Google Docs account. The hacker gained access to the employee's private Google documents which includes future business plans for the social network. This information was then pitched to blogs and published in some locations across the web. Luckily, according to Twitter, there was no breach of user data. But still it raises concerns about what kind of information consumers are leaving lying around in their Google accounts and Twitter and Facebook accounts for that matter. It also raises the fact that maybe passwords are not a strong enough watch dog for private data. As our lives on the Web become more transparent, it is good to remember what information to leave in Web-based services and which to leave offline.
