With the massive wave of Privacy concerns from the social media sector, Twitter have in response to the new set of regulations from the European Union updated its policies to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Starting this month, the company will be introducing some changes to make it easier for users to manage their personal information; while the change in policy is the first call and bothers on how Twitter collects, uses and shares its users data.
The new GDPR regulation which goes into effect on May 25 gives people in Europe rights to access and delete data that companies like Twitter have collected about them.
While all Twitter users will be able to have access to their data and control how it's used by the company when the GDPR rules goes into effect, only EU residents will have the law backing them with the new regulations.
Twitter have provided direct links to your core privacy and security settings, which are accessible when you are logged into the social network. Through these settings you can see what data Twitter has relating to your account and decide if to share it with the company or not.
