Want to protect your privacy on Twitter? Now Twitter has made available options which allow you to opt out of Twitter suggestions and tailored results, which enhance their ability to customize your experience.
Twitter is tracking your web browsing habits as you continue to visit third-party websites loaded with Twitter buttons and Follow widgets, the so called Twitter ecosystem. They use this tracking information to customize your Twitter experience by offering you tailored suggestions about whom to follow, and this usually includes people frequently followed by other Twitter users that visit the same websites.
Tailored suggestions are useful for most users as it helps you find people with similar interests and will help to grow your Twitter network quickly. It is a great tool for Twitter as it helps to increase engagement with the site, and you are more likely to find your friends and related interesting people.
Twitter continues to aggregate this data and will evolve and tweak suggestions based on your browsing habits. If you want to protect privacy on Twitter, they let you opt out (keeping up their support for Do Not Track initiative, which respects the users right to opt out of tracking measures by websites they do not visit, which includes analytics scripts, advertising networks, and social networks).
