First World Security Problems

from here and here

This is probably going to be an unpopular opinion in certain circles, but Twitter erecting a barrier in front of the laziest form of 2 factor authentication isn't that big a deal. Not only because there are more secure options that are still free for the people who really need 2FA, but also because the vast majority of people don't really need it. In fact, the vast majority of people aren't even using 2FA right now. 

While it would be good if everyone was using 2FA for things like their bank or their email account, it is a foolish consistency to think we need it for everything.
