The microblogging site has sent memo to news organisations and media outlets, days after several high profile hackings, with the most recent involving the Associated Press, whose hacked account tweeted erroneously about an attack on the White House.
Twitter wants organisations to be aware of incidents promoting individual awareness as well as following the security guidelines outlined by the social network.
These measures include ensuring passwords are strong, with at least 20 characters, and never sending passwords via email.
The company further advises organisations to use two factor authentication where available and ensure that email passwords are different from Twitter account passwords.
Twitter account holders should further review authorised apps and email Twitter if any applications they do not recognise appear, with organisations urged to update information related to partner accounts.
Furthermore, Twitter has asked for a list of accounts held by such organisations.
“Help us protect you. We're working to make sure we have the most updated information on our partners' accounts. Please send us a complete list of all accounts affiliated with your organization, so that we can help keep them protected,” reads the memo.
Organisations are also urged to create a formal incident response plan which could be initiated once the organisation feels threatened, advising that Twitter be contacted immediately when hacking appears likely.
