The Twitter hack: how it started and how it worked [guardian.co.uk]
A Japanese developer was the first to notice the weakness in Twitter's site and says he reported it as far back as mid-August. He put up a demonstration - and then the exploits flourished.The original discovery of the weakness, known as a "cross-site scripting" (XSS) hack, seems to have been made by a Japanese developer called Masato Kinugawa. He says that he reported an XSS vulnerability to Twitter on August 14 - and then discovered that the "new" Twitter, launched on Tuesday 14 September, had the same problem.
