It is a tough task for social networks to keep everything safe against hacks and other vulnerabilities. Hackers will constantly find their way around anything that you put in place. So they often turn to hackers themselves to beef up security.
Twitter is no different. The micro-blogging network has hired the famous/infamous Apple hacker, Charlie Miller, to be a part of its security team. Miller reportedly found a number of major security flaws in Apple’s iOS. Now Twitter want him to discover similar flaws in its own systems before the hackers find them.
Twitter has an ever-growing user base and as it grows it gets more vulnerable. They are betting that Miller will be a very useful addition to the security team.
