Twitter Adds Beefed Up E-mail Security

Following a series of high profile security breaches that brought Twitter’s security woes to the fore once again, Twitter has announced that it adopted the DMARC e-mail security protocol earlier this month.  The protocol works by comparing e-mails supposedly from a known sender to a record of known information about that sender, and routing the verified messages.  Twitter is doing this in hopes of cutting down the number of spoofed e-mails Twitter users receive in attempts to breach accounts, but has still made no comment on more advanced measures like two-step authentication, already in use by Google, Dropbox, and others.
