I told them to stuff it, so they’ve scolded me again!
This is the world of the SJWs, wagging their fingers at normal people like we’re all in kindergarten. They really do think this is their natural role in society; to correct naughty children.
“If you keep being naughty, we’re going to send you to bed without supper for the WHOLE WEEK.
And yet, I am reminded, this gentleman still appears to get a free pass.
Remember when you were in your hippie “free school” and the teachers liked the bullies?
Something a lot of people don’t know is that Twitter tracks ALL your activities online using cookies – those pernicious little footie-prints we leave all over the net – and they’ve recently said they’re going to be using this to monitor us to make sure we don’t go looking at any “hate sites” while no one is looking. (I’m guessing that would include this one.)
They’ve been tracking us for quite a long time. In December 2013 a site called “Naked Security” told us…
Tailored audiences is Twitter’s take on retargeting – a behavioural advertising technique that allows companies to continue advertising to somebody who has visited and then left their website (typically because they visited but didn’t buy anything).
Retargeted ads are the ones that seemingly follow you around – no matter which website you’re on, the same advert appears over and over.
In theory, behavioural advertising is good news all round because advertisers are less likely to waste time and money talking to the wrong people and consumers are more likely to see adverts for things they might actually want.
Unfortunately while consumers get a share of the upside they have the downside to themselves; in order for it all to work somebody, somewhere has to collect, store and analyse lots and lots of information about what those consumers have been doing.
Until recently, Twitter would allow you to opt out – if you knew about it and of course, they weren’t going out of their way to let people know – by clicking a few things on your privacy settings. But I guess too many people objected to being followed around the web, because they recently announced they would be cancelling their “Do Not Track” feature and making your privacy settings “more granular…”
Just now when I went to my privacy settings to see what we have I found this.
It’s an old principle: getting power is difficult; keeping it is easy.
