Twitter's New Tailored Suggestion Service Raises Questions

By InfoLawGroup LLP on June 05, 2012

The buzz words in privacy over the last few months (really longer than that) have been "Do Not Track." Twitter is just the latest company to adopt the DNT browser option, indicating in a blast email to all Twitter users that the setting is now available for implementation if a user so chooses. Interestingly, however, a much less publicized setting was also presented in that same email blast: Twitter's new "tailored suggestion feature." Applications and widgets created by Twitter will begin to collect data about Twitter users from third party websites that feature those products. This is an entirely new feature from Twitter, and is being implemented as a default option for both new and existing Twitter users.
