NEW YORK - Twitter is adding an extra security measure to users' accounts in an effort to prevent unauthorized logins.

Twitter said that users will be able to enroll in a login verification program.

For those who sign up, Twitter will send a six-digit code using a text message each time they sign in to Twitter.

Besides their username and password, users will have to enter the code to log in as well.

Microsoft Corp., Google Inc. and Facebook Inc. already allow two-step verification as an option.
