Security only supports RC4 ciphers

Dieser Artikel ist älter als zwei Jahre und womöglich veraltet!

Due to the well-known problems with the RC4 cipher i recently disabled all ciphers that use RC4 in my web browser. I have not experienced any problems until a week ago. Maybe some old websites will not support ciphers without it. That is what i thought.

So days ago one of these short videos from vine, a service of Twitter, showed up in my Twitter timeline. I clicked it and got this:


(This means the SSL handshake failed as a result of lack of common ciphers.)

To be more precise: does not support any cipher without RC4 (SSL-Check). Twitter itself even supports elliptic curve crypto. So why not vine?

Twitter, please explain me that.
