    Twitter terms of service and privacy policy analysis Twitter terms of service and privacy policy analysis Presentation Transcript

    • Twitter – Terms of Service & Privacy Policy Overview This presentation provides a basic overview of the social networking and micro-blogging platform.
    • What is twitter?
      • Twitter is a web based service that allows users to post short messages answering the question “whats happening?” in 140 characters or less.
      • Depending on privacy settings, these posts can then be viewed either by online friends, or anybody else connected to the internet, anywhere in the world.
    • What do you get?
      • Twitter allows you to broadcast your thoughts, opinions and ideas in 140 character bursts.
      • Your tweets (posts) can be delivered to your internal network, or any internet user with an internet connection, anywhere around the world.
      • Twitter can be used for personal or business use – there are endless possibilities!
    • How to sign up?
      • Accounts are free, so there is no monetary cost to sign up.
      • To sign up for twitter, simply head to https://twitter.com/signup .
      • To create an account you need to enter in your full name, desired username, password, email, agree to the terms of service and privacy policy.
      • Don't forget to read the terms of service and privacy implications!
    • Did you really read the terms of service and privacy policy?
      • TOS are available at: https://twitter.com/tos
      • Privacy Policy available at https://twitter.com/privacy
      • There are many reasons why people do not read terms of service and privacy policies before signing up to a platform:
        • Don't understand them – too much jargon
        • Don't have the time – too busy
        • Don't really care – not interested
      • These terms and policies are important!
    • TOS Explained: Copyright
      • You own your own tweets (posts)
      • You are responsible for your tweets, not twitter.
      • You allow twitter to post your tweets.
      • Twitter can post your tweets anywhere, and don't have to pay you for them.
      • Twitter can share your tweets with others
    • Implications of use: Copyright
      • Copyright notices aren't attached to your tweets, and if somebody re-posts them, you can't easily tell if the reproduction is authorised.
      • Owning your own tweets does leave you with legal responsibility for them – if somebody doesn't like what you've posted, they could take legal action against you.
    • TOS Explained: Availability
      • Twitter can stop providing you or others with a service temporarily or permanently without prior notice.
      • Twitter reserve the right to reclaim usernames at their discretion.
      • Twitter services are available on an as-is and as-available basis. There is no recourse available to you if their service is unavailable
    • Implications of use: Availability
      • Twitter reserve the right to take away your username, and give to somebody else.
      • Remember twitter can interrupt or discontinue their service at any time – one day you may need a back-up plan!
      • If twitter is unavailable and you were relying on them, too bad! There is no recourse available to you
    • Privacy Policy Summary
      • Twitter can collect personally identifiable information about you
      • Twitter can log your browsing activity on their platform
      • Twitter can sell or share your information with 3 rd parties
      • To read the full details, see https://twitter.com/privacy
    • Implications of use: Privacy
      • The information you provide to twitter can be given to other organisations.
        • The information you provide upon sign-up
        • The browsing habits that you follow
        • The tweets you post
      • If you aren't happy with your information being in the public domain, think twice about signing up or posting anything to the platform!
