Arabnet Digital Summit 2013


Arabnet Digital Summit 2013 is just around the corner with 3 days of amazing networking possibilities with the spear heads of the Digital world in the MENA region which begins from June 23, Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai.

This year’s ArabNet Digital Summit will feature a new and exciting segment, the Digital Showcase where participating entrepreneurs will showcase their enterprises,  products or services, and have an oppurtunity to connect with investors, media, and potential clients.

I will run a blog post at the end of each day (hopefully) with a brief of daily activities. Do keep a look out here.

You can also follow me @acepilotkhan or @Krikorianm @shivasingh @moeys on Twitter who will be tweeting live from the summit.

Twitter introduces new security feature: login verification

“Today we’re introducing a new security feature to better protect your Twitter account: login verification.” said Jim O’Leary from Twitter’s product security team in a  blog post.

This feature comes into effect months after continuous attacks on high profile accounts like The Financial Times, Burger King, Jeep, BBC Weather and most recently Associated Press.

Built on a  two-factor authentication, this new feature asks you for a second login which a special code sent as a SMS text to your registered mobile after you login into Twitter. Apps  that are linked to Twitter will continue to work without disruption with the Login Verification enabled.

Although it is an option which can be turned on/off inside the setting menu. It will come in handy for single users, but might be an hassle for an corporate account where agencies handle the activity with multiple users. Twitter earlier had asked to use a single computer for tweeting to be more secure.

Here is a video showing you how to setup:
