On Thursday, May 23, Google+ users are buzzing about Twitter's plan for two-step authentication and Chevy's new electric car, the Chevy Spark. 

Following a series of high-profile hacks, the microblogging site Twitter is taking steps to ensure the security of its users with the introduction of a two-step authentication system.

Two-step or two-factor authentication works by sending a unique, one-time log-in code by text message to the phone linked to the Twitter user's account, making it much harder for a hacker to gain access to an account. 

Twitter's two-step verification is voluntary. More information on the feature, as well as a step-by-step guide on how to implement it, can be found via Twitter's blog at blog.twitter.com/2013/getting-started-login-verification.

Also causing a buzz on Google+ is Chevy's electric vehicle, the Chevy Spark. The car company has just announced the pricing for the Spark in the US -- $27,495 before incentives (such as federal tax credit) -- and the Spark is expected to hit select dealers in the USA this June.
