Twitter finally gets login verification feature

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.
