Twitter has launched new security capabilities designed to protect users of the micro-blogging service accessing it through the newly launched Firefox 4 web browser.
The Content Security Policy (CSP) feature was developed by Mozilla in an attempt to thwart cross site scripting (XSS) attacks, according to a post on the Twitter Engineering blog.
The CSP feature works only on Twitter's mobile site at present, but the firm hopes to roll it out across "more of Twitter" in the future. The firm also urged users to request support for the standard in their preferred browser.
