TweetDeck, a social media dashboard tool used to manage and post to Twitter accounts, has taken its service offline to address a security issue, but users should still take steps to protect themselves.
We've temporarily taken TweetDeck services down to assess today's earlier security issue. We'll update when services are back up.— TweetDeck (@TweetDeck) June 11, 2014
TweetDeck users should log out of the service by going to twitter.com, clicking the gear in the top right corner, clicking "Settings," then clicking "Apps" in the left-hand navigation bar, and revoking access to TweetDeck. Users should stay logged off until hearing otherwise from TweetDeck.
Updated at 11:03 a.m.: TweetDeck is back up.
We've verified our security fix and have turned TweetDeck services back on for all users. Sorry for any inconvenience.— TweetDeck (@TweetDeck) June 11, 2014
