This is kind of amusing. Two factor security is really very cool. Gmail handles it very well. If I log into Gmail from a coffee shop or random computer, Gmail sends my phone a text to make sure it’s me. Much harder to hack my email.
But a Wall Street Journal reporter decided to show how cool two factor security was by publishing his Twitter password. Not realizing that the key word in “two factor security” is “two”.
No one hacked his Twitter account, he just got so many text messages that his phone became unusable.
So use two factor authentication. Really, it’s the best. Just don’t hand out one of the factors…
