Welcome to this week’s quick social media tip. Today I want to show you how to review your Twitter data.
Reviewing your Twitter data can give you insights into the type of information stored for your account.
What type of information is available to you?
Your Twitter data provides you with a snapshot of your Twitter information, including the following:
Account: Log into your Twitter account and go to More.
Click on Settings and Privacy. You will see information such as your username, email addresses or phone numbers associated with your account, etc. You can update or correct most of this information at any time.
Account history: You’ll also be able to see your login history, as well as the places you’ve been while using Twitter.
Apps and devices: You can also view the browsers and mobile devices associated with your account (if you are logged in) or current device (if logged out), and the apps you have connected to your Twitter account. If you see login activity from an app you don’t recognize or that looks suspicious, you can go to the Apps tab in your settings to revoke its access to your Twitter account. The IP location shown is the approximate location of the IP address you used to access Twitter, and it may be different from your physical location.
Account activity: You will be able to see the accounts you’ve blocked or muted.
Interests and Ads data: You can also see interests that Twitter and its partners have inferred about your account or current device.
You can also view any Twitter advertisers who have included your account or current device in their tailored audiences. You can opt-out of interest-based advertising in your personalization and data settings. This will change the ads you see on Twitter, however, it won’t remove you from advertisers’ audiences.
Download an archive of your data: You can also download a machine-readable archive of information associated with your account in HTML and JSON files.
