But at the same time, Twitter is giving users more control over what kind of user data can be used for targeted advertising, as well as more transparency about the information it collects about you.

I am part of 7,612 audiences from 2,295 advertisers, according to Twitter. Twitter says, "This will allow us to further improve and personalise our services, connecting you with the stories, brands and organic content you care about most". Here, you can see additional check boxes regarding personalization of ads based on your information. Their effort resulted in a new Privacy Dashboard and a reduction in the data that is collected from users. At the top of this page is an option to disable all personalization and data settings; on the Twitter website, click the Disable all button, and on the mobile app, tap the toggle switch at the top. If you like, you can leave them all active, which is the default, or you can uncheck every box and turn it all off. But it has also discontinued support for the Do Not Track browser preference. Anyone who truly wants to stop tracking online should be aggressive about it by using ad blockers and extensions such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Privacy Badger.

Twitter uses cookies to store information about you when you visit a site that has an embedded tweet or Twitter share button. Here, users can control options pertaining to things like going live on Periscope, photo tagging, read receipts, personalized ads and how easy it is for others to find you on the platform.

This information will now be stored for 30 days, whereas previously Twitter only retained data for 10 days.

Round 3 - Game 2 - Ducks vs. Predators RECAP: Even Up
Rinne, who had entered the game with a sparkling.950 save percentage, is unlikely to play this shaky again. Anaheim and Nashville are meeting in the postseason for the third time , including the past two seasons.

Additionally, Twitter is adding a new Personalisation and Data setting that will offer more granular control to users over how it uses the data. I have to admit, as I was preparing this gallery of images for these new settings, I was surprised at just how much data Twitter had on me, the apps on my devices, and how widely that data was amongst various Twitter advertisers and partners.

While you're at it, you might as well dump "Share data through select partnerships" too.

The company claims that it never links users' web history with details that can identify them, such as their name, email address, phone number or Twitter handle.
