Twitter's 385 banned passwords

Did you know that there are 386 passwords that you can’t use to log in to your account? It’s true! But, that 386 less passwords for hackers to try to guess 🙂 (of course, if you pick a secure password no one’s gonna get it.) How do we know? These passwords are all in a comma-delimited list of banned passwords in the Twitter.com/signup source code.

I’ve reproduced all the passwords here. It seems that they keep adding new ones to this list every few weeks, so it’s only accurate up to the time of this post. They are sorted in alphabetical order and numbered.

After looking through that list, what do you think made Twitter ban these passwords? Can Twitter see the top 300+ used passwords? (If so, that would be creepy.) Is Twitter a giant discrimanist? Well, what do you think? Post a comment with YOUR conspiracy theory in it, I’d like to hear!
