Warning: Do not change your Twitter username, email address or reset password

It seems like Twitter is having a bug since Tuesday.
There were reports where users were being locked out of their account after they change their username, email address or reset their password. This issue seems to affect new users as well as long term users. Twitter is still investigating this issue currently and advice users not to change their user name, email address, or password until further notice.
Strangely, this warning wasn’t well publicized. Those features aren’t disabled on Twitter and there is no warning when you attempt to change your info. I tried changing my email and nothing happens to my account. I guess it’s only affect a small group of users. Whatever it is, just play safe and avoid changing those info for the time being.
