|Digits, part of Twitter's new Fabric tool set|
The time-saving trick lies in SMS verification, which allows you to simply input a phone number and have Twitter verify that number. This is a two-step process that is sure to make a lot of people happy, but I forecast some serious security issues coming alongside this new service. Only the future will tell, but let us hope Twitter is prepared.
Digits was not the only Twitter service announced today. In fact, the social media giant's service reveals included Fabric (tool set), Crashlytics (error reports), and MoPub (advertising). Should be interesting to see where these services will take Twitter!
