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.
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."
