Revisions to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

We’ve revised our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, effective September 30, 2016, and we encourage you to read the updated documents in full. By using our services on or after September 30, 2016, you agree to the revisions.

Terms of Service

In our Terms of Service, we’ve reorganized and simplified the structure, removing sections that are duplicative of the Twitter Rules ( and the Privacy Policy. We have also made some updates to reflect the international aspects of the service. Some of these changes are only relevant in certain jurisdictions.

Privacy Policy

In our Privacy Policy, we’ve added a section with information about our participation in the EU-US Privacy Shield program. In addition, we’ve made a series of updates to clarify how our various Services have evolved over time. In particular, we have clarified what information you provide is public, what information is private, and how you can control your information. To that end, we’ve added a new section to provide more detail about your non-public communications, like Direct Messages. We have also explained that you can have multiple accounts on Twitter, and that we receive information when you use our services even if you are logged out or have not created an account. We have created a new section to consolidate information about how our advertising services work and what information we use for them.

We strive to provide you with meaningful information about your use of our services. If you have any questions about these updates, feel free to write to us here.
