Twitter announced today that it is adding HTTPS to their service to make it more secure. Twitter users should be able to go their user’s setting and choose a box to always use HTTPS. Twitter says HTTPS is recommended for users who use public Wi-Fi where network connections are less secure.
HTTPS is a combination of HTML and SSL/TLS protocols. HTTPS are often used for payment and banking transactions on the web. HTTPS usually displays a locked key on some browsers, or a modified or certified address bar in some browsers.
Twitter hopes to have HTTPS as the standard setting in the future.
