Twitter is looking over your mobile apps.

Twitter | New Feature

Twitter is now putting its nose around what you actually got installed in your mobile. The blue bird is now collecting information about the other apps installed in your phone. The  gathered  data is currently being used to customise Twitter content according to your interest.

However, the information contained in each application remains safe as it is not taken by the social media app.

You will soon experience a much more bespoke application in the way Twitter will suggest you ‘who to follow’ as well as the content in you ‘timeline’ and ‘promotions’ that will seek to match your interest.

This new feature will be notified to you by a message requesting your approval to be installed; otherwise, you can manually ensure that Twitter is not taking this data by turning off the option of using your private information on the setting of your mobile. Alternatively applications such as Tweetboot or Talon could help to avoid this happen.
