What is Twitter for Websites — ads info and privacy

What is Twitter for Websites?

Twitter for Websites is a suite of products that enable website publishers to integrate Twitter content into their sites. These products include embedded Tweets, embedded timelines, Tweet buttons, and follow buttons.

What information does Twitter collect through Twitter for Websites and how is that information used?

When you view Twitter content or Twitter products integrated into other websites using Twitter for Websites, Twitter may receive information including the web page you visited, your IP address, browser type, operating system, and cookie information. This information helps us to improve our products and services, including personalized suggestions and personalized ads. Learn more about the information we receive and how we use it in our privacy policy and cookies use.

What are my privacy choices?

To protect your privacy, we never associate the web browsing history we collect from Twitter for Websites with your name, email address, phone number, or Twitter handle, and we delete, obfuscate, or aggregate it after no longer than 30 days, as explained in our privacy policy. We don’t store this web browsing history from websites that have opted-out of this collection, as described below, or from certain domains such as .mil and .gov. We also give you, and the publishers of the websites you visit, choices about whether Twitter stores this data and how it will be used.

Your privacy choices

Note: Please confirm that you are logged in if you want to view or change the web settings for your Twitter account. Changing your Twitter settings in your web browser when you are logged out will only affect behavior on that browser while you are not logged in to Twitter. Learn more about how to access your Personalization and data settings, including in your Twitter mobile app.

  • To control whether Twitter stores information about other websites where you’ve seen Twitter content, adjust the Track where you see Twitter content across the web setting in your Personalization and datasettings. If you have this setting disabled or are in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Twitter will not store or use such web page visits to improve your experience in the future. If we’ve previously stored your web browsing history, your experience may continue to be personalized based on information already inferred from that history.
  • If you do not want Twitter to show you interest-based ads on and off of Twitter, there are several ways to turn off this feature:
    • Using your Twitter settings, visit the Personalization and data settings and adjust the Personalize ads setting.
    • If you are on the web, you can visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s consumer choice tool at optout.aboutads.info to opt out of seeing interest-based advertising from Twitter in your current browser.
  • If you do not want Twitter to show you interest-based ads in Twitter for iOS on your current mobile device, enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting in your iOS phone’s settings. 
  • If you do not want Twitter to show you interest-based ads in Twitter for Android on your current mobile device, enable “Opt out of Ads Personalization” in your Android phone’s settings.
  • To control personalization across devices, visit your Personalization and data settings and adjust the Personalize across all your devices setting. This will control whether we link your account to browsers or devices other than the ones you use to log into Twitter (or if you’re logged out, whether we link the browser or device you’re currently using to any other browsers or devices). 

Choices for website publishers

In addition to the user options described above, we offer website publishers choices about Twitter’s collection of data from Twitter for Websites products integrated into their sites. Learn more.
