Is it finally safe to get back on Twitter?

Twitter has been working on a new security measure to crack down on hacking, according to Wired’s Mat Honan. The solution, which includes a two-step authorization process similar to the verification measures released by Google last August, is currently undergoing internal testing, and the company plans to release the measures to users gradually in the near future. For now, its support page puts the onus for handling hacks on the user, advising merely that you change a compromised password and revoke connections to third-party applications.
