    They both have permanent HTTPS and are social media platforms. Neither are safer than each other imo.

    Both Security (e.g. Malware, Scams etc.) and Privacy (e.g. Personal Data Leakage)
    have been major concerns of both Twitter and Facebook.;)

    Do you guys know, is HTTPS Twitter fully secure, or it uses encryption just on the authentication phase (as Google do)?

    Seems to use HTTPS on every Twitter name. Hence the name, always use HTTPS.
