Tailored Tweets

Did you know that Twitter crafts sponsored content based on your browser history? They say it so casual Tailor Twitter to your interests.

I stumbled upon this while weeding through some of the new Twitter releases last week.

There is an option to turn this off, and I was quick to want to uncheck-mark the personalization—then realized I actually enjoy that my content is relevant to my recent website searches.

Depending on what I am browsing in, I am searching items for clients and that keeps my content relevant to me.

I wonder how much data they have on me?

Twitter honors Do Not Track (DNT), which is a privacy preference that you can set in most web browsers.

Many browsers do not educate their users on this issue, here is CHROME’s take on it.

Do Not Track:
For Windows: In the App list, tap Settings, flick left to Applications, tap Internet Explorer, and then tap Advanced Settings.

​Chrome. To turn on or off DNT in Chrome, go to Chrome menu > Settings > (Advanced) Privacy, then select your preferred option for “Do Not Track.” …

On the flip side, if you are looking for relevant content within your Twitter HOME FEED please enable it or leave it as is.


Always thinking, here is my home office desk
