Antipatterns for sale

Twply is a straightforward little Twitter app that sends @replies to email. It uses the password anti-pattern. Oh, but don’t worry. It states quite clearly on the site that Your password is safe with us. No worries!

Twply is up for sale …sold. That means all those passwords are available to the highest bidder ($1200 in this case).

Sleep tight, Twply users. May you wake to a better day.
