Twitter Is Now Keeping Track Of What Apps You Use, But Don’t Worry, You Can Opt Outvendredi 28 novembre 2014
A new change to Twitter’s mobile app will see it collect information about the other apps installed on your phone for the purposes of delivering “tailored content that you might be interested in.”
Twitter points out that they’re only collecting a list of apps you have installed, it’s not collecting any data about what you do within the apps.
The company is calling this initiative an “app graph”, and intends to use the data to create a more personalized experience. Some of the things it may do with the data collected about your apps include :
Improving “who to follow” by suggesting other other people with similar interests.
Including content in your timeline that Twitter believes you’ll find interesting, such as tweets, accounts, or other content.
Showing you more relevant promoted content.
