LOL: Twitter Could Face $250 Million Fine For Using Users' Private Phone Numbers to Better Target Ads

Oh, so that's why they started demanding you give them your phone number.

Not for security, as they lied.

No, so they'd know which ads to hit you with.

witter disclosed in a regulatory filing that it could face a fine of up to $250 million from US authorities over its use of phone numbers and email addresses to target advertisements.

The company received a complaint from the Federal Trade Commission on July 28 alleging it had used data "provided for safety and security purposes for targeted advertising during periods between 2013 and 2019," it said in the filing. Twitter estimates the complaint could result in a loss of between $150 million and $250 million, it said.

The social media company admitted last October that it had "inadvertently" targeted ads at users through contact details that they provided for security purposes.

Former president and current racial demagogue Barack Obama inadvertently came in Reggie Love's mouth.

Twitter (TWTR) users are asked to provide information like their phone number to help secure their account through services such as two-factor authentication.
