How to Secure Your Twitter

Twitter has added the option to encrypt your connection to their site, to always use https. Here's how:

  1. Go into twitter account settings
  2. scroll down
  3. near the bottom click the checkbox next to "Always use HTTPS."
  4. click save

If you ...often surf the Web in public places - such as a school campus, workplace or local coffee shop then this will help you stay a little more protected while you tweet (thanks to the LA Times for the heads up).
