Before you watch Part III of our investigation into Twitter, I have to warn you that the discussions held by these Twitter employees IS NOT family friendly.
If you’re at the office, turn down your speakers or put on your headphones.
If the children are in the room, ask them to cover their ears.
With that warning out of the way, here’s what you should be really worried about . . .
If you have held a private conversation on Twitter, and possibly any other social platform, your conversation was NOT private.
Even if you deleted sensitive discussions you held privately online, not only are they still there, the information you discussed — attached to your personal profile — is being traded like a commodity.
Have you discussed personal family matters with others over private messages?
Have you talked about your health or the diagnosis of a loved one?
Have your vented relationship challenges to a close friend?
Have you expressed intimate sentiments to your spouse or partner?
If you’ve done any of those things, and again, even if those messages have been deleted, they are now attached to your personal “virtual profile” and bought and sold thousands of times over.
As one Twitter employee called it, “it’s creepy big brother.”
WARNING GRAPHIC LANGUAGE BY TWITTER EMPLOYEES:
witter has over 300 million users across the world and in essence has turned itself into a giant database of virtual personalities with preferences, likes and dislikes all attached to each and every one of us . . . . even if you don’t use Twitter!
Clay Haynes, Twitter’s Senior Network Security Engineer, admits that “You leak way more information than you think… Like, if you go to Twitter for the first time, we have information about you.”
I’d guess that 99.8% of people never read Twitters terms and conditions, and those that do have a 99.9% chance of not understanding the depth and implications of them.
That’s why, as an avid Twitter user myself, I was shocked to hear what is really going on behind the closed doors of this tech giant.
Watch this video and tell others to do so, and we will wait and see how Twitter responds to this one.
Our video is already being featured at the top of the Drudge Report site, which has had over 890 million site visitors over the past 30 days alone.
Thanks again for everything and as always . . . stay tuned.
