Twitter Makes Secured Connection More Permanent

Twitter began rolling out its secure HTTPS connection two weeks ago, and today announced a more permanent solution. Now, users can choose to always access Twitter through HTTPS rather than an unsecured connection by simply changing an option in their settings.

In early March, pioneering Twitter celebrity Ashton Kutcher was hacked. Although this was a friendly hacker who only wanted to warn Kutcher and his followers about the dangers of unsecured tweeting, Twitter responded quickly and announced that users could access its service through a secured HTTPS connection.
