Twitch stitch-up: Gaming vid streamers in data breach hack alert

There needs to be a standard we were hacked announcement including certain details. The two main things I want to know are:

What algorithm was used for encrypting the passwords?

Were the passwords individually salted?

Maybe they don't include these details because they don't want to confuse the public, but the cynic in me says they don't include these details because they are too embarrassed to admit they weren't.
