Two-Step Verification for Twitter

It looks like Twitter has finally introduced a new two-step verification process for its platform. We have mentioned before how important it was that Twitter start offering this to its users, in light of the recent hacks to major Twitter accounts.

Twitter is calling this service, login verification, and it works in conjunction with your cell phone. Once you set your preferences to require this new authentication process, whenever you login to your account, Twitter will send a special code via SMS text to your phone. Once you receive that phone, you enter it into your Twitter and you are ready to go. This code verification will be required every time a user logs off and back on.

It is good to see Twitter answering the calls and providing a more secure login for its users. With people relying more and more on Twitter for the latest news, no one can afford constant hacks from normally trustworthy sources.
