Twitter and Jott are not secure!

I have never used Twitter before, although I heard about it on the TWiT podcast a couple weeks ago. I learned about Jott shortly thereafter on LifeHack, and I signed up for that service, and thought it was generally cool, although not so useful to me since WordPress does not allow me to e-mail my posts in. Now I have just learned from a very reliable source that both services are extremely insecure. Anybody who knows your phone number can make Twitter or Jott entries in your name. The article on O’Reilly goes into detail about how.
