Twitter Birthday Privacy Regulations
Twitter is a worldwide, accessible social media platform that allows any user to interact with it. To stop people who shouldn’t be using it from doing so, Twitter set up birthday setting traps that only experienced Twitter users can see.
For example, Twitter does not allow users under 12 years old to use its platform. It made it possible by blocking any user’s account that saves the birthday age as 12 or below.
Twitter birthday privacy rules include
- When you set your birthday as ‘only you,’ the information is displayed on your profile, but only you can see it
- When you remove your birthday information, it won’t be displayed on your profile and no one, including you, will be able to see it.
