Twitter announced it had inadvertently collected and shared iOS location data with one of its partners. The social media platform said in a blog post users who have more than one Twitter account on iOS and opted to use the precise location feature in one account had all their location information collected, regardless of whether the feature was enabled for the other profiles. Twitter intended to remove location data from any real-time bidding but did not do so. The company said it implemented measures to “fuzz” the data “so that it was no more precise than zip code or city.” Twitter said no other information was shared with the partner and that it has fixed the flaw in question.
