Twitter working on two-step authentication process

SAN FRANCISCO

According to Wired, Twitter is testing the feature and hopes to make it available to users soon. It will add an extra layer of security to Twitter accounts, requiring users to put in their password and a special code when logging in from a new device.

Google and Facebook already use this process.

A bogus tweet was sent Tuesday from the AP's account claimed President Obama had been injured after two explosions at the White House.
