Twitter finally launched two-factor authentication – Here’s how to enable it

Going a week without a major brand having its Twitter account compromised was starting to become a rare occurrence. Critics and users alike repeatedly called upon Twitter to release two-factor (or step) authentication. The added layer of security requires you to enter your password, and then a subsequent six-digit access anytime you try to log into Twitter. The short code is sent via text message to your cell phone, which means that any would-be hackers would need to not only crack your password, but to also have physical possession of your cell phone.

Unearth trends and useless facts alike with Google’s new Top Charts

Unearth trends and useless facts alike with Google's new Top Charts

Google revealed a new feature of Google Trends today, announcing that Top Charts will now be published every month.

The Top Charts are similar to Google’s annual Zeitgeist feature wherein Google publishes a year’s worth of search trends every December.

The new Top Charts will do the same, only monthly.

Google’s first Top Charts, published today, reveal stats ranging from top-searched actors (Selena Gomez) to top “quick service restaurants” (Pizza Hut) and dog breed (pit bull).

Indispensable knowledge

Currently only statistics from the U.S. are available, but Google promises that more countries are “coming soon.”

Google’s 2012 Zeitgeist revealed last year that “Gangnam Style” was the top search term in Australia, and we’ve no doubt that Top Charts will eventually convey equally indispensable facts.

Google’s Top Charts are built on the search giant’s Knowledge Graph and purport to show actual trends and not just raw keyword data.

The Top Chart lists are divided up into categories like actors, scientists, TV shows, whiskeys, and dozens more. There are 40 total.

Search of the moment

Google also unveiled a curious new animated visualization of the top trending search terms that updates automatically in real time.

It fills the browser with changing colors and search terms in a variety of languages, and can be customized to show different regions and terms.

The Google Trends homepage will now show elements of these new features, as well as the standard trends features that you’re accustomed to.
