Twitter under Irish investigation over data collection
Twitter is reportedly facing an investigation by privacy regulators in Ireland over data collection in its link-shortening system, the media reported. Privacy regulators in Ireland have launched an investigation into exactly how much data Twitter collects from t.co, its URL-shortening system, The Verge reported late on Saturday.
Facebook and Twitter have faced lawsuits for collecting data on links shared in private messages, although no wrong-doing was conclusively established in either case. Image courtesy: Reuters
