Twitter: To log or not to log: Is that the question?



Twitter: To log or not to log: Is that the question?


by Zachary Wolff in LogRhythm blog Dialog


Includes Wikileaks suggestion in Twitter:

Given that police are increasingly issuing subpoenas to Twitter, join us in requesting twitter change their data retention policy. #NOLOGS

and a reiteration of what data Twitter says it logs:

Our servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with our website, applications and advertisements, may also be included in Log Data. If we haven’t already deleted the Log Data earlier, we will either delete it or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.

and its policy on law and harm:

We may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Twitter’s rights or property.

Patrick Hayes, Spiked Magazine
