Twitter Now Tracking User IP Addresses - F-Secure Weblog | Privacy | Social Media

Twitter Now Tracking User IP Addresses - F-Secure Weblog | Privacy | Social Media | СписаниеТО Интернет Маркетинг | Scoop.it

In order to determine that I was attempting to log in from an "unusual" location, Twitter must be keeping a history of my previous IP addresses to compare against. This type of security feature is not new, Facebook has been doing this sort of thing for years already. But I've not yet seen it from Twitter. (A few years ago, Twitter seemed to be actively against such an idea.) Unlike Facebook, I don't see anyplace from which I can download my own connection history. Previous IP addresses used are available to those who download a Facebook archive. But IP address information isn't in the Twitter archive that I downloaded today.

So then the questions I now have for Twitter is this: for how long have my connections been logged and tracked? And when will a copy of the data be available to me?

If you're using Facebook, you're giving the company a ton of information about yourself which it is selling to advertisers in one form or another.

I know I'm not keeping up with everything I could be doing to protect my privacy, but I'm hoping to use this information to help.
