Twitter is good as a communication tool. However, I just discovered its biggest downfall. Getting hacked.
Like the New York Times, one of our corporate Twitter accounts got hacked. How? I don’t know. The biggest flaw in Twitter is that they don’t send out an email to verify that you really wanted to change your password. Instead they trust that you are the true user and on with the show. How could such a huge service fail with the basics? This is a flaw that is going to really come back to bite them. If more newspapers and media companies start to get hacked there is going to be major media backlash. Just wait until someone like CNN gets hacked and Anderson Cooper is posting porn or hate messages. We’ll see how long the Twitter fad keeps rolling along.
Just remember. The basics are often the most important things.
