Twitter’s purpose is to keep the world informed by serving the public conversation. We work hard to build a great experience for people Tweeting, and seeing Tweets all over the world, and protecting the privacy of the people who use Twitter every day. We believe you should know the types of data you share with us and how we use it. Most importantly, you should have meaningful control over both. We want to empower you to make the best decisions about the information that you share with us and to ensure you feel confident that your data is protected and secure. As Twitter’s Data Protection Officer, I will be working to continue our longstanding commitment to protecting you and upholding your right to privacy.
History of Our Privacy Policies
From the beginning, Twitter has been a global platform for people to make themselves heard and to see what’s happening. We are proud of our history of partnering with civil society and standing up to governments to protect and defend the people that use our services, and we continue to evolve our efforts around documenting our work.
Woven throughout are direct links to your core privacy and security settings, which are accessible at any time when you are logged into Twitter. Here you can see what data Twitter has relating to your account and you can decide whether you want to share it or not. Over time, as we learn how people use these controls, we’ll continue to work to improve them and Twitter as a whole.
Thank you for reading and thank you for your trust.
