Twitter intros HTTPS connections

Any Twitter user who is concerned about the security of their pages, will be able to switch to the more secure servers using the HTTPS prefix, this follows a trial carried by the micro blogging site and some of its users.

All the user has to do is go into their account settings and at the bottom of the first page below their account details there is the “Always use HTTPS” feature, check the box enter the account password and that is it all done!

According to a Twitter blog posting, “This will improve the security of your account and better protect your information if you’re using Twitter over an unsecured Internet connection, like a public Wi-Fi network, where someone may be able to eavesdrop on your site activity. In the future, we hope to make HTTPS the default setting,”
