Twitter and the same old passwords - I’m guilty of this also.

Looks like the nice folks at twitter got bit by a hacker. They report the problem stems from a twitter employee who the same password on different systems.

Oh man, I am so guilty of this. 

I basically have three passwords I use for all services (including hosting!).  After reading the twitter post, I am starting the process of changing my stuff. I’m thinking of something like:

google_my_good_password
bank_my_great_password
moodle_my_great_password

Get the idea?  Maybe I should just rotate my passwords more frequently.
