Twitter have recently updated their privacy policy and unless you do something about it, come June 18th you’ll automatically be opted in. We haven’t really got a problem with the new privacy but if you have you should check out our guide for safeguarding your data from Twitter’s cookies. If, however, you’d first like to check out what data Twitter has on before taking action, read on.

How to see Your Data on Twitter

Accessing your Twitter data is a simple process that won’t take too long at all.

What you need to do, on mobile, is click on Privacy and safety in the settings menu and then scroll down to the bottom until you get to Personalization and data page. Once you’ve clicked this you’ll be able to go through to Privacy settings and at the bottom you’ll find a button labelled See your Twitter data. You can view your profile here but if you select the Your Data tab you’ll be able to see all of the information Twitter has gathered from your account.
