Help Twitter is Not Safe, Say Experts
Advertisement
#1
Information 
Experts in Reuters article commented that as compared to the other sites, security on Twitter is not safe. The quote was commented after the site’s security was inspected and it was found that Twitter sent out fake reports to the Fox News saying that President Barack Obama is dead.

The fake news was given because the site was hacked. The article also said that if twitter had adopted the Two-factor authentication, then they would surely have been able to stop the hacking.

As compared to other sites like Google and Facebook, Twitter simply allows the users commune with the site using a common decoded link, which can make it easier for possible hackers to whip the passwords.

Twitter Spokeswoman Lynn Fox refused to utter whether the company proposed to add two-factor authentication or make https encryption an evasion and she further commented that for every social networking site, it becomes the duty of the users to protect their passwords.

She adds, "We take safety very seriously and we all the time look for ways to help the users to make their accounts more protected”.

Daniel Diermeier, a Professor at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, also commented that Twitter needs to entrust to do a systematic assessment of their security and the practices.
