Twitter has implemented a new security technology in the official emails sent to its users, the company announced on Thursday, making it less likely for users to receive fake spam emails from a Twitter.com email address. It’s a fight to combat password phishing, especially in an escalating series of hacking incidents over the past few months.
Sift has raised $540,000 in funding to turn the deluge of offers sent to consumers via email into a shopping app for the iPad. The Burlingame, Calif.-based company, which was incubated by the Tandem accelerator, said the seed funding comes from Shawn Wang, co-founder of Baidu and Unity Ventures; Deep Nishar, SVP of Product at LinkedIn; Bhupen Shah, co-founder of Sling Media; Sand Hill Angels and others. The money will be used to hire more employees.
