    Twitter have recently banned easy to remember/guess passwords on their system. It si because of the security breach that happened weeks ago.

    Why ban them? They're very easy for humans and brute-force hacking scripts to figure out, making it easier for people to get access to your account. On Twitter, this can be embarrassing. On other sites, this can be very costly.

    Here's the list of 370 banned passwords:

    Good to see that they are taking steps to improve the security of their accounts. Everyone should do their bit to helps security by including mixture of the following in their passwords; upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.

    There are some passwords in the list which can't be easily guessed. It seems weird to see such letters in the list. Anyways, thanks for letting us know.

    That's very surprising GekiDan, especially given that there were suggestions of a security breach in the past because an Admin account used the password. "Administrator". More in this thread - Post #4. However, I'm sure that they have now set down much stricter password guidelines for their staff.

    With lots of hacking happening every now and then, I can't really say with site gives much better security.

    Regarding to ones site, I suggest that one should regularly backup their site so that if something happens, you can get your back up and running with only a litte damage done.
