Twitter today revealed that it will soon begin to analyze the apps Twitter users install on their phones. The company claims the data will be used "to help build a more personal Twitter experience ... so we can deliver tailored content that you might be interested in." Some of those improvements might include who-to-follow suggestions, or adding unsolicited Tweets and other content to users' timelines. Twitter says it is not collecting any data from those other apps, but it is reporting back to Twitter which apps are installed. Twitter says Android and iOS users can opt out of the app tracking by adjusting their settings. Directions to opt out are available on Twitter's web site.

What I love is that you have to opt out of it, why not make it so you need to opt in instead!
