Dave Eggers made me quit Twitter -

Now that I’m back on social media, I’m realizing that the answer isn’t necessarily to deprive yourself. It’s better to find a balance and not think of your life as existing in 140 characters or status updates.

Twitter Shows The Way Forward With Do Not Track | Electronic Frontier Foundation

Twitter Shows The Way Forward With Do Not Track Twitter today announced a new way of targeting advertisements for its users, including a partnership with three online tracking firms: media6degrees (m6d), Chango, and Adara.

Why Twitter’s ad-tracking system is actually great news for the Do Not Track camp | VentureBeat

In matters of Do Not Track, Twitter is doing things very, very right. The company unveiled yesterday its new ad retargeting effort, which lets it display advertisements to users based on their browsing activity.

Tune in with Twitter TV - Brian Solis

Have you ever watched TV while using a laptop, smart phone, or tablet? Wait, why am I asking. Of course you have. That’s what we all do now right?
