Twitter Privacy Policy


When you use Twitter , even if you 're just looking at Tweets , we receive some personal information from you like the type of device you 're using and your IP address .
You can choose to share additional information with us like your email address , phone number , address book contacts , and a public profile .
We use this information for things like keeping your account secure and showing you more relevant Tweets , people to follow , events , and ads .
We give you control through your settings to limit the data we collect from you and how we use it , and to control things like account security , marketing preferences , apps that can access your account , and address book contacts you 've uploaded to Twitter .
You can also always download the information you have shared on Twitter .
In addition to information you share with us , we use your Tweets , content you 've read , Liked , or Retweeted , and other information to determine what topics you 're interested in , your age , the languages you speak , and other signals to show you more relevant content .
We give you transparency into that information , and you can modify or correct it at any time .
We require certain information to provide our services to you .
When you choose to share the information below with us , we collect and use it to operate our services .
If you do choose to create an account , you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you .
On Twitter this includes a display name ( for example , “ Twitter Moments ” ) , a username ( for example , @TwitterMoments ) , a password , and an email address or phone number .
Most activity on Twitter is public , including your profile information , your time zone and language , when you created your account , and your Tweets and certain information about your Tweets like the date , time , and application and version of Twitter you Tweeted from .
You also may choose to publish your location in your Tweets or your Twitter profile .
The lists you create , people you follow and who follow you , and Tweets you Like or Retweet are also public .
Periscope broadcasts you create , click on , or otherwise engage with , either on Periscope or on Twitter , are public along with when you took those actions .
So are your hearts , comments , the number of hearts you 've received , which accounts you are a Superfan of , and whether you watched a broadcast live or on replay .
Information posted about you by other people who use our services may also be public .
For example , other people may tag you in a photo ( if your settings allow ) or mention you in a Tweet .
You are responsible for your Tweets and other information you provide through our services , and you should think carefully about what you make public , especially if it is sensitive information .
In addition to providing your public information to the world directly on Twitter , we also use technology like application programming interfaces ( APIs ) and embeds to make that information available to websites , apps , and others for their use - for example , displaying Tweets on a news website or analyzing what people say on Twitter .
We generally make this content available in limited quantities for free and charge licensing fees for large-scale access .
We use your contact information , such as your email address or phone number , to authenticate your account and keep it - and our services - secure , and to help prevent spam , fraud , and abuse .
We also use contact information to personalize our services , enable certain account features ( for example , for login verification or Twitter via SMS ) , and to send you information about our services .
If you provide us with your phone number , you agree to receive text messages from Twitter to that number as your country 's laws allow .
Twitter also uses your contact information to market to you as your country 's laws allow , and to help others find your account if your settings permit , including through third-party services and client applications .
You can choose to upload and sync your address book on Twitter so that we can help you find and connect with people you know and help others find and connect with you .
We also use this information to better recommend content to you and others .
If you do , we will use information from that service , including your email address , friends , or contacts list , to recommend other accounts or content to you or to recommend your account or content to others .
If you email us , we will keep the content of your message , your email address , and your contact information to respond to your request .
When you communicate with others by sending or receiving Direct Messages , we will store and process your communications and information related to them .
This includes link scanning for malicious content , link shortening to URLs , detection of spam and prohibited images , and review of reported issues .
We also use information about whom you have communicated with and when ( but not the content of those communications ) to better understand the use of our services , to protect the safety and integrity of our platform , and to show more relevant content .
You may provide us with payment information , including your credit or debit card number , card expiration date , CVV code , and billing address , in order to purchase advertising or other offerings provided as part of our services .
Your Privacy and safety settings let you decide :

Some of our ad partners , particularly our advertisers , also enable us to collect similar information directly from their website or app by integrating our advertising technology .

You can update your data in your Twitter Ads dashboard or by contacting us directly as described in this Privacy Policy .

We may receive information about you from third parties who are not our ad partners , such as others on Twitter , partners who help us evaluate the safety and quality of content on our platform , our corporate affiliates , and other services you link to your Twitter account .
When you log into Twitter on a browser or device , we will associate that browser or device with your account for purposes such as authentication , security , and personalization .
Subject to your settings , we may also associate your account with browsers or devices other than those you use to log into Twitter ( or associate your logged-out device or browser with other browsers or devices ) .
We do this to operate and personalize our services .
Your Twitter Personalization and data settings let you decide :
Whether we show you interest-based ads on and off Twitter

Information that Twitter has inferred about you such as your age range , gender , languages , and interests
We also provide a version of these tools on Twitter if you do not have a Twitter account , or if you 're logged out of your account .
This lets you see the data and settings for the logged out browser or device you are using , separate from any Twitter account that uses that browser or device .
On Periscope , you can control whether we personalize your experience based on your watch history through your settings .
In the limited circumstances where we disclose your private personal data , we do so subject to your control , because it 's necessary to operate our services , or because it 's required by law .
Subject to your settings , we also provide certain third parties with personal data to help us offer or operate our services .
For example , we share with advertisers the identifiers of devices that saw their ads , to enable them to measure the effectiveness of our advertising business .
