Twitter is erroring on the side of caution these days. While users have had the option to use HTTPS when accessing the site now Twitter is setting it as the default.

The Twitter blogexplains

Last year, we added the option to always use HTTPS when accessing on the web. This setting makes your Twitter experience more secure by protecting your information, and it’s especially helpful if you use Twitter over an unsecured Internet connection like a public wi-fi network.

Now, HTTPS will be on by default for all users, whenever you sign in to If you prefer not use it, you can turn it off on your Account Settings page.

It’s really that simple. Nothing to analyze or get in a huff about, right? Geesh, it’s actually pretty mundane considering the state of the Internet industry blogosphere these days, huh?
