How Hard Can It Be?

How hard can it be to set a decent password. The fact that US Central Command had their Twitter account hacked, as we'd say in Australia, someone "dropped the ball". Its so easy to set decent passwords that will prevent this sort of thing happening. Keepass will generate passwords of any length. And there is plenty of other ways of generating and recalling appropriate strength passwords. I find it hard to believe that such an important account should leave the door open.

You could do worse than spend some time over here at GRC's "How big is your haystack", an excellent resource to help get your head around the whole password thing.
