Looks like they are rolling this out now, but the only way to get the code is by SMS, so there is no way to use an authenticator app like Google or Authomator. Pretty disappointing.

How does that affect multiple twitter accounts with only one SMS device?

That I don't know. I don't have it on my account yet, but I'd assume also that the code would only be needed on unknown systems. Also hoping it works with Blaq, my Twitter client of choice on my phone.
