Twitter is testing chat threads for Spaces
Twitter is already bringing the edit feature to let users modify their tweets more conveniently and quickly. Now the word is that it is also testing a new feature. Twitter is soon to bring a new feature for Twitter Space users that will modify the way they interact with their listeners. Twitter has begun testing a new feature that would effectively bring discussion threads to Spaces, according to its official Spaces account. After a host opens a room, the microblogging site stated it will immediately deliver a Space card as a tweet. All listeners will be able to send tweets straight from that Space once it happens. Also, these discussions will be part of a Twitter thread that will be connected to the original room where the talks are taking place. Within a Space, a new conversation button will appear next to the reactions button, allowing you to access this thread.

Google, Microsoft, and Apple move one step toward password-free computing
Apple, Google, and Microsoft joined up on World Password Day to boost support for the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium’s passwordless sign-in standard. This is a “milestone” in the passwordless journey, according to the stakeholders and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Password-only authentication, according to FIDO, is one of the most serious security problems on the internet. It also added that it is leading to consumer irritation, account takeovers, data breaches, and even stolen identities. “Passwords are one of the industry’s greatest and most pervasive security vulnerabilities and most intractable problems,” Beyond Identity CMO Patrick McBride told SDxCentral. “Efforts like FIDO are critical as they endeavour to address different use cases to try and start to move away from password dependence.”
