Hack The Planet

Because if you don't, who will?

This Friday in Colorado

The last week or so has been pretty rough for Twitter. Not only has Twitter been DOS’d a number of times and kicked offline but it also came out that hackers were using Twitter to control a botnet. It seems that Twitter isn’t just dangerous because of the amount of time you can waste but also because it can be used for data and identity theft. Of course with all of the fake Twitter accounts and the previous issue of Twitter accounts being hijacked because of a Twitter employee with a weak password it makes me wonder what type of future Twitter has. My guess is a good one because the normal citizen doesn’t care about security breaches, only about what the new hot hairstyle their favorite celebrity is wearing.
