Date the breach occured
Between 5th September 2017 and 11th January 2019, a bug inside Twitter led to private tweets being made publicly available. It is believed that in total at least 88,726 users in the EU have been affected by the breach and there is likely to be even more. Having their private tweets made public it is possible that Twitter users could have experienced:
In December 2020 Twitter were fined €450,000 by the Irish Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) for failing to quickly declare and effectively document the data breach.
If you are one of the 88,726 users who have been affected by the Twitter data breach you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. Twitter has stated that it informed known users who were affected by the breach, but the bug could have been in place since 2014 and Twitter does not have logs that go back that far. Also, the Twitter Help Centre revealed in a statement that it could not confirm every account that may have been impacted, so it is worth getting in touch with us to see if you have a case to make a claim.

Data breach experts
We use dedicated data breach solicitors who have handled thousands of data breach claims
Users have the right to expect that any personal data that they have shared with an organisation, such as Twitter, is securely stored and handled. When data protection standards have fallen short, and in this case a hack has enabled unauthorised access to your personal data, you can make a claim for compensation.
Bringing a data breach claim not only gets you access to compensation, but also holds a company or organisation to account for their actions. As a result, this will usually prompt them to take the necessary steps to boost their data security measures to ensure that such a breach cannot occur again.
Data regulations mean that you have a right to compensation for non-material damage. This means those affected are entitled to compensation for the stress, frustration, and anxiety associated with the breach and the potential for missed career opportunities. As well as this they could claim for the loss of privacy itself.
If you think you may have a valid Twitter data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with data breach experts who will make enquiries for you and confirm whether or not you have a valid claim worth pursuing.
Our recommended experts will act for you on a No Win, No Fee basis, meaning there is no risk to you in making a claim and nothing to pay in the unlikely event we take on your claim and you don’t win compensation.
