Towards A Secure Twitter Experience

Hack Of A Job

Twitter Blog, March 15: Making Twitter more secure: HTTPS: Today, we’re taking an important step to make it easier to manage the security of your Twitter experience – we are adding a user setting that lets you always use HTTPS when accessing Using HTTPS for your favorite Internet services is particularly important when using them over unsecured WiFi connections..... To turn on HTTPS, go to your settings and check the box next to “Always use HTTPS,” which is at the bottom of the page. This will improve the security of your account and better protect your information if you’re using Twitter over an unsecured Internet connection, like a public WiFi network, where someone may be able to eavesdrop on your site activity. In the future, we hope to make HTTPS the default setting.
Feels to me like Twitter swatted a bug.
