Twitter shows it is vulnerable - and has some very grand plans


Twitter suffered a security breach last week as an unemployed security hacker who lives in Europe broke into Twitter's online documents. The incident underlined the risk for people and companies who keep vital information on the Web.

Yesterday, a detailed story on how the hacker was able to break through Twitter's security, along with a personal apology from the hacker, was published by TechCrunch. Even more interesting than the security weaknesses, though, are the details of how just big Twitter plans to become in the near future.
