On Twitter? Change Your Settings

Twitter FINALLY has created HTTPS settings.

If you’re on Twitter, I recommend (if you haven’t already) getting on there and changing your settings stat.

This will encrypt your account information when you’re tweeting on an unsecured. WiFi network.

1. Log on to twitter.com.

2. In the upper right-hand corner, where you see your Twitter handle, click the triangle and scroll to settings.

3. Click settings and scroll to the bottom.

4. Click the box next to “Always use HTTPS.”

5. Click save.

6. You’ll have to re-enter your password.

Then it’s complete!

Never think about security until one gets hacked! :)

Thanks for the tip, Gini; I will reset mine just because you said so.

[…] On Twitter? Change Your Settings – Gini Dietrich outlines how to change your settings on Twitter from unencrypted to encrypted (using HTTPS) for additional security. Why is this important? If you work out of coffee shops and other public wifi hotspots, any extra security is a good thing. […]

Anyone know how the this is affected by the use of twitter clients like hootsuite? I never use twitter.com.

@dannystarr You should change the settings on Twitter.com because it affects all third-party apps.
