Twitter adds two-factor authentication
by Curtis Lee Fulton
Twitter has joined Google in adding two-factor authentication to sign-ons. The company says that when a user signs into Twitter, “there’s a second check to make sure it’s really you. You’ll be asked to register a verified phone number and a confirmed email address.”
The upgrade has provoked Internet libertine Kim Dotcom to brag about his two-factor authentication patent, claiming Twitter is in violation.
Google, Facebook, Twitter, I ask you for help. We are all in the same DMCA boat. Use my patent for free. But please help funding my defense.
