Twitter Announces 'Do Not Track' Option for Users

Rate this Entry
Last week Twitter announced that they will be implementing a 'Do Not Track' option for its users, finally allowing Tweeters to opt out of being tracked. This is not a surprising move in this world of heightened security concerns and so many privacy issues. According to [URL="http://mashable.com/2012/05/17/twitter-do-not-track-feature/"]Mashable[/URL], "Twitter’s move comes after the FTC [URL="http://mashable.com/2012/03/26/ftc-privacy-changes/"]released a report[/URL] in March calling on designers of Internet browsers to stop allowing websites to collect sensitive data about users. The other social media giant, Facebook, does not currently have a Do Not Track feature."
