First of all I want to say, making an authentication system without exposing some sort of secret is basically impossible, banks reduces risk most likely by making the cookie expire REALLY quickly, like 15min or something. Also scaling to millions of users would be very difficult.
In other words don't get mad at twitter for this, probably almost every website/app you use right now does something similar, so be mad at everything instead 🤣
