OpenId and Twitter

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 1200354217

One of the advantages of the OpenID system is that you don’t need a password at all to login. In fact André showed me MyVidoop where they use image categories to login instead of the traditional password.

Here is a new login workflow that uses your twitter account to send you your password. You can receive it by IM, SMS or your favorite Twitter client, and just login with it. As simple as that, and you are using your twitter account to login everywhere OpenID is available.

Pretty cool! I just wish Twitter themselves buy or develop this system, so we can all have official Twitter OpenIDs!
