Twitter considers implementing two-factor authentication

Microblogging site posts job opening for a software engineer to develop security features, including multifactor authentication.

Twitter may have two-factor authentication in the works for its micro-blogging platform to increase its security.

According to a job advertisement first spotted by The Guardian, Twitter is looking for a software engineer to fit in to its product security division.

One of the responsibilities for the new engineer will be to "design and develop user-facing security features, such as multifactor authentication and fraudulent log-in detection." The job listing also says that the new engineer's work will "directly impact the security of hundreds of millions of Twitter users."

Other companies have been gradually introducing multi-factor authentication in the past few years. These include Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon Web Services, Dropbox, Blizzard's Battle.Net, and Valve's Steam.
