PPGS Grade B

Transparency (Clear and Complete): B

The privacy policy of Twitter is generally written in clear language and explains the types of personal data and usage information collected. However, there are some areas where the policy could be clearer in explaining certain purposes for collecting personal data and usage information.

User Control (Access, Deletion, and Changes): B

The policy allows users to access their personal information and provides options for deleting or modifying it. However, there could be more clarity and specific instructions on how users can exercise these rights. Additionally, the policy lacks explicit information on opting out of certain data collection and sharing practices.

Third-party Sharing (Limits and Consent): A

The policy clearly outlines when personal information is shared with third parties and whether users can give or withhold consent. It also provides details on the limits of third-party sharing and the circumstances in which sharing occurs.

Security Measures: A

The policy describes the security measures in place to protect users’ personal information and emphasizes the company’s commitment to maintaining security.

Notification of Changes: B

The policy explains how users will be informed of significant changes to privacy practices, including through email or updates on the website. However, it could provide more specific information on the frequency and methods of notification.

Readability: B

Overall, the policy is written in a clear and concise manner. However, the reading level is slightly higher than that of an average 9th-grade United States student, leading to a slightly reduced grade.

Overall Grade: B

Twitter’s privacy policy meets several criteria, including third-party sharing, security measures, and notification of changes. However, there is room for improvement in terms of transparency, user control, and readability.

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

If we don't act now to safeguard our privacy, we could all become victims of identity theft.

Anyone who steps back for a minute and observes our modern digital world might conclude that we have destroyed our privacy in exchange for convenience and false security

I don't see myself as a hero because what I'm doing is self-interested: I don't want to live in a world where there's no privacy and therefore no room for intellectual exploration and creativity.
