Twitter has admitted to having unintentionally shared user data with advertising and third party partners. A blog post published by the Micro-blogging site stated that user information that may have been shared without people's permission includes country code, details of users' engagement with the ad and information about ads.
"The data involved stayed within Twitter and did not contain things like passwords, email accounts, etc,” the post said. "We know you will want to know if you were personally affected, and how many people in total were involved. We are still conducting our investigation to determine who may have been impacted.”
The micro-blogging site has advised users to check their settings for now. "You trust us to follow your choices and we failed here. We're sorry this happened, and are taking steps to make sure we don't make a mistake like this again," the post added.
We recently discovered and fixed issues related to your settings choices for the way we deliver personalized ads, and when we share certain data with trusted measurement and advertising partners. We want to share more context around this with you: https://t.co/jDn5zeWVwU— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) August 6, 2019
