Twitter Will Be More Secure With HTTPS

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.
