RelatedA Twitter spokeswoman stated- “GSR did have one-time API access to a random sample of public tweets for a five-month period from December 2014 to April 2015,” they conducted an internal review and did not find any access to private data about people who use Twitter. It is to mention that it’s a common practice for Twitter to sell API access to large organizations around different news, events, and ideas for surveying opinions. As told by Twitter “unlike many other services, Twitter is public by its nature. People come to Twitter to speak publicly and tweets are viewable and searchable by anyone.” But email address, phone numbers, and IP addresses are not public on Twitter unless chosen by the users. Thus it reminds us to be safe and be careful to what we put online and shouldn’t rely on platforms like Twitter.
