A strong password is the first barrier between your account and the hacker. Don’t reuse old passwords from different accounts. Here are some password tips from Twitter: Create a password that’s at least 10 characters long, use a mix of numerals, symbols and both uppercase & lowercase letters, use a different password for each website & email, keep your password in a secure place and use a password management tool to keep passwords secure. 1Password is a good option for storing and generating passwords. Also, don’t just rely on passwords. Twitter provides 2-step verification to make sure only you access your account. This will make your account safer.
