Reviewing your Twitter data can give you insights into the type of information stored for your account. It provides an easy way for you to view details about your account, and to make changes as you see fit.
What type of information is available to me?
The Your Twitter data account setting provides you with a snapshot of your Twitter account information, including the following:
Account history: Information about the history of your account, such as when and where it was created, and information about the contact information you’ve provided Twitter.
Device history: Information about the devices you have used to access your Twitter account.
Login history: Information about when and where you’ve logged in 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.
Other data: From the Your Twitter data setting, you can also access additional information about your account, including the contacts imported from your address book, your entire Tweet history, the apps you have given access to your Twitter account, the Twitter accounts you’ve muted, and the Twitter accounts you’ve blocked. You can find directions for requesting your Twitter archive in this article.
