Poor password protection

There is a certain politician who uses Twitter a lot.  A Dutch security researcher has determined his password.  Extraordinarily easily.  It's "maga2020," and two-factor authentication is not enabled.

 

(Simple testing seems to indicate that this information is correct, and that a lot of people have tried it ...)

Re: Poor password protection

(Oh, somebody just reminded me: this is the same politician who says that nobody ever gets hacked ...)

 

(Unless someone knows at least 15% of the password ...)

Re: Poor password protection

What's the over / under that he uses his face to unlock his phone?  Signs point to YES.
