More personalized suggestions make building a great timeline — filled with Tweets, links, media, and conversations from people and topics you’re interested in — easier and faster. Twitter can show you more relevant Tweets, more relevant suggestions about who you might enjoy following, and better ads.
How it works:
We determine what content you might enjoy based on a number of factors. If you have the Track where you see Twitter content across the web setting enabled in your Personalization and data settings, we may consider your visits to other websites that integrate Twitter content (such as embedded timelines). For example, if you regularly visit birdwatching websites, we might suggest accounts that frequently Tweet about that topic, or show you ads for binoculars or birdfeeders.
It’s up to you.
We are committed to offering you meaningful privacy choices. If you don’t want personalization (including ads) based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate Twitter content, there are several ways to turn off this feature:
- For users signing up to Twitter on the web, you can uncheck the box that says Track where you see Twitter content across the web.
- After signup or if you are using Twitter logged-out, you can disable the Track where you see Twitter content across the web setting in your Personalization and data settings.
We don’t store this web browsing history from websites that have opted out of this collection, or from certain domains such as .mil and .gov. If you have disabled the Track where you see Twitter content across the web setting in your Personalization and data settings or are in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Twitter will not store or use such web page visits to improve your experience in the future. If we’ve previously stored your web browsing history, your experience may continue to be personalized based on information already inferred from that history.
