If I understand this correctly, an administrative employee at Twitter had their personal e-mail info compromised. That incident lead to top secret Twitter documents being stolen. Now there are unscrupulous websites around the internet threatening to post them and Twitter is mad about it. Here come the lawyers.
We are in touch with our legal counsel about what this theft means for Twitter, the hacker, and anyone who accepts and subsequently shares or publishes these stolen documents. We're not sure yet exactly what the implications are for folks who choose to get involved at this point but when we learn more and are able to share more, we will.
