It's an answered prayer to many, particularly to heavy users of the socialblogging 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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
