If twitter would use two step authentication like google does we wouldn't have issues like this,,,at least not as often
Hardly. Your Twitter account isn't the important thing here. What is important, as was mentioned above, is that many/most people use the same credentials for multiple services. If hackers get a password for any given user, chances are that password is also used for other things (email accounts, e-commerce accounts, bank accounts, etc).
However, reading the article itself suggests that users were not the actual target here, but the organisation. In which case, 2-step wouldn't have made a blind bit of difference either.
