Read below for more information about your profile visibility settings, and how Twitter uses your birthday when added to your profile.
Remember, most of the profile information you provide us is always public, like your biography, location, website and picture. For certain profile information fields we provide you with visibility settings to select who on Twitter can see this information in your Twitter profile. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public.
Below are the visibility settings that are available for your birthday. Your settings allow you to separately control who on Twitter can see your birth year and who can see your birth day and month in your Twitter profile.
- Public: This information will be part of your public profile, meaning it may be viewed by anyone all around the world instantly.
- My followers: Only people who follow you can view this information on your profile
- People I follow: Only people whom you follow can view this information on your profile
- We follow each other: Only people who follow you and whom you follow can view this information on your profile
Only me: Only you can view this information on your profile
- If you’re under 18, your visibility setting for birth year will be set to “Only me.” After you turn 18, you can edit your visibility setting to select another visibility option.
How does Twitter use my birthday?
If you choose to add your birthday to your profile, it will be displayed to the audience that you’ve chosen. It will also be used to customize your Twitter experience. For example, we will use your birthday to show you more relevant content, including ads. You can learn more about how Twitter Ads work here.
