Twitter launches phone- based log-in system Digits

Washington: Twitter has launched its phone-number based password killer dubbed ‘Digits’ that allows users to log into apps and services using just their phone, giving them a much needed break from remembering multiple passwords.

The effort stands separate from Twitter’s own app – insiders compare it to Vine; a separate but related product – but the interface will look familiar to anyone who’s enabled two-factor authentication to log into a Twitter account.

Digits is part of Twitter’s attempt at engaging more into product development, alongside a suite of mobile development tools called Fabric and a crash-tracking app called Crashlytics.

Twitter’s VP of product for revenue Kevin Weil said as the platform grows, Twitter will not just be viewed as the consumer app, but as a broader mobile services company.
