Twitter made more secure with HTTPS

Twitter Icon - Ongoing Issues pngTwitter have announced that they have now created a new security setting allow users to access Twitter using HTTPS.

For some time, users have been able to use Twitter via HTTPS by going to https://twitter.com. We’ve made it simpler for users to do this by adding the option to always use HTTPS.

This is a great move by Twitter.  To turn it on follow this:

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.
