I requested my data from Twitter today.. and I was shocked to see that they know every app I have ever installed on my phones (using this to show relevant ads) AND a bunch of different advertising companies have me as a tailored audience..which included Candy Crush and McDonald's. What?!

Didn't know that the Twitter app collected that data.
Removed twitter app from my phone, now using a webwrapper instead.

@Naxjns Do you know of a page that gives details on requesting data from Twitter? We ought to share that around.
