Wired has today reported something we have been wondering for some time now, Twitter will soon be rolling out a two-step authentication system after a number of high-profile accounts were hacked recently.

The system, will potentially prevent hackers from accessing your account as they would need two pieces of information, normally a code which has been texted to the users account, or one created from an app on their smartphone.

Just yesterday, Associated Press’ Twitter account was hacked, posting a message that the White House had been bombed and President Obama was injured, a potentially very dangerous Tweet considering the accounts readership, and the nature of the message.

There’s no official news on whether Twitter are actually working on the system, or when they will have it implemented for, but I can’t see no reason why they wouldn’t.
