It's an answered prayer to many, particularly to heavy users of the social blogging platform known as Twitter. Today, Twitter is announcing the launch of a new security feature to better protect its users from the seemingly undending phishing schemes and hacking attempts.
Starting today, Twitter will be offering a two-factor authentication system which will require users to verify their account using their phone number and email address. To access the feature, just go to "Setting" and select the "Require a verification code when I sign in” option.
Although the new feature will most likely diminish reports of compromised accounts, Twitter still recommends using a strong password to be safe.
