Twitter has suffered a number of security breaches over the years. More than once, the hackers have broken into its systems and made away with user data, including usernames and passwords. One such incident happened only a few days ago. Apparently, to put an end to this, Twitter is now considering implementing two-step login verification.

Two-step login authentication has already been implemented in a number of other online services. These include the likes of Gmail and Facebook. Over time, the feature has proved truly useful in that it effectively thwarts most attempts to break into a given account.

In two-step authentication, the popular approach is to send a code to the user’s personal mobile number when someone tries to log in to his account. Only when that specific code is entered in the second process does the system allow the login process to complete. In this way, even if some hacker is able to find your password, you’ll be alerted the moment he tries to log in.

Twitter has now listed a new job opening which seeks a software engineer who can implement ‘multifactor authentication.’ This is a clear hint at where the micro-blogging website is headed with its security. When Twitter was asked about it, the company stated that it had nothing ‘specific to share.’
