Twitter 2-Step Verification Update

The folks at Twitter have sure been busy updating the platform lately. I recently wrote about the new Twitter Lists and they have also added a 2-step login verification. Twitter profile hacks typically make the news and go viral rather quickly. Accounts like E! Online and Burger King have been hacked. This is not to be confused with a verified account, which will have a blue checkmark and are typically owned by celebs and brands to prove they are real and not a parody account.

A post on the Twitter Blog announced that users can now elect to enable a two-step verification for a more secure account. They even put together a nice video to show you how to do it.

What do you think? Are you going to enable the new twitter 2-step notification? Let us know in the comments.
