Twitter now has a two-step verification process as a way to “better protect your Twitter account,” the company announced in a May 22 blogpost.

Users who opt into that extra verification step will first log in with a password and then enter in a “verification code” sent to a phone.

As Twitter explained, the move is in response to hacking of Twitter accounts.
