Twitter authentication is coming soon to the bitcoin Trezor hardware wallet
Trezor is a bitcoin hardware wallet which signs bitcoin transactions made through a desktop or web wallet.
It’s the first widely distributed and original bitcoin hardware wallet and is open source. Since it’s open source, other hardware wallets have been modeled off of their software, such as BWallet. Trezor makes transactions completely safe even on a compromised or vulnerable computer. One of the features of Trezor is their passwordless access to their web interface.
And in a tweet sent out this week, it looks like Trezor is working on another helpful feature that will make accessing Twitter much more secure. By integrating Twitter authentication into the Trezor device, wallet users in the future may be able to access Twitter securely with the touch of the device.

It’s unclear at this time if the device will act as two-factor authentication (2FA) for your Twitter account, so users will have to possess the device in order to authenticate to log into Twitter. Using a hardware wallet as a 2FA device to access Twitter would be a great feature to have.
