In order to learn how to secure and manage your privacy on Twitter, it may be relevant to find out what data Twitter has collected on our profile.
Here's a quick tutorial to help you take a look at the types of data Twitter has collected on our profile.
Twitter, like other social networks, relies on the collection of data from its users in two ways: the social network uses this information to offer personalized content to its users, but also to sell advertising space to its business partners. The collection of user data is therefore essential for the Bluebird company, both for its business model and for the operation of the platform.
However, in the past, data leaks have tarnished Twitter's reputation for privacy. It is therefore important to know exactly what information has been collected by the social network.
Find out what data Twitter has collected on our profile
- Open Twitter and click on the "More" icon in the navigation bar at the top left of the window.
- Select "Settings and Privacy" from the drop-down menu.
- In the page that opens, click on the "Account" tab. Then, at the bottom right of the window, click on "Your Twitter Data".
- Twitter then allows you to download an archive by clicking on "Download Data". It is a .zip file.
The Twitter download archive is updated monthly. It contains the information stored on the profile: connection history and security alerts, media, publications, reactions, message exchanges, lists of subscriptions and subscribers, blocked profiles and all activities on your Twitter account.
Finally, it should be noted that since 25 May 2018, the DPMR (General Regulation on Data Protection) allows European Union citizens to obtain a more detailed account of this information by using the Twitter privacy issues form.
