It's no secret that some top Twitter accounts haven't had the best of luck lately as big names like AP and even Burger King have been hit in the last few months. Today, Twitter upped their security however by finally adding in two-factor authentication for users.

For those that don't know, two-factor authentication is a security feature that requires users to enter a special code when logging in to a site. Typically the code is sent via SMS to a users phone and they then enter it as part of their login.

Sites like Gmail, Dropbox and others have been successfully using two-factor authentication for quite a while, so it's great to see Twitter finally getting in the game as well.

I for one am pumped about the new feature - I've had a few things hacked over the years so the more security the merrier. 

Are you excited for the new feature? Sound off in the comments!
