Twitter May Be Holding On to your messages Long After You Think They’re ‘Deleted’.

So we do know that twitter has had a couple of privacy issues lately, from failing to protect private tweets to surfacing deleted location information. Now, it appears Twitter may be holding on to data it claims it deletes.

Techcrunch reported on friday that it was able to dig up messages dating back years that associated with deactivated or suspended accounts. The revelation, flagged by security researcher Karan Saini, indicates that attempting to scrub yourself from its servers may be futile, even if the site’s Privacy Policy claims that user-deactivated accounts will be “deleted.” when asked by a Gizmodo reporter what they actually meant by “user data will be, in fact, be scrubbed if users deactivate their accounts,” they declined to comment😯.

As TechCrunch noted, Twitter states on its law enforcement guidelines page that after it or a user deactivates an account, “there is a very brief period in which we may be able to access account information, including Tweets.” But that TechCrunch was able to fetch messages from long-since deactivated or suspended accounts indicates that at least where direct messages are concerned, that data may be retained. Twitter also states in its Privacy Policy that it “believe[s] you should always know what data we collect from you and how we use it, and that you should have meaningful control over both.” But failing to delete data that it leads users to believe is wiped is, well, not that. Well i guess next time you post a tweet on twitter be sure to check it twice before posting because once posted it can’t be deleted.
