Taking a big decision, the world's popular micro-blogging site Twitter has discontinued the tweet feature through text. Twitter has taken this decision after the company's CEO Jack Dorsey's account was hacked. Jack Dorsey's Twitter account was hacked through SIM swapping. As you all know, for all online accounts, two-factor authentication is used nowadays and it requires a mobile number because OTP comes on the registered mobile number.
In its statement, the Twitter support team has said in a post on Twitter that in order to protect our users, we are turning off the feature of tweeting via SMS, because this feature can be misused to make a dent in people's account.
For your information, the Twitter account of Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey was hacked at midnight last Friday, although now his account has been restored. After the hack, hackers made several objectionable tweets from Jack Dorsey's account. Many tweets continued to appear on his profile for more than half an hour. However, later the Twitter team recovered his account. The current CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, has around 42 lakh followers.
