  twttr.BANNED_PASSWORDS = ["111111","11111111","112233","121212"…

The entire list is there for you to enjoy.

To some, the contents of this list may seem obvious. In general hackers tend to be clever. The ones who aren’t tend to run hacker tools which are written by those whom are clever.

In the movies, we’re led to believe that cracking a password requires some amazing effort and lots of processing power. In reality it usually requires knowing the name of your first born or your pet.

People really do pick OBVIOUS passwords.

If your passwords can be found on page 1 of a paperback dictionary, you might consider an update. At the very least, check out the following list from Twitter’s list of banned passwords and make sure you’re not using them anywhere else.
