Have you seen Mr. August?
Here’s my Uncle Pete doing some #SafetySur stuff for the official Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 2015 pocket calendar. Celebrity status for sure! So if you’ve been through the Honolulu International Airport, you’ve probably seen my Uncle (who has since been promoted to supervisory/management at TSA HNL).
If you were wondering, my Father and Uncle are proud Veterans who served their country. Yep, safety runs in my family’s blood…
Safety runs in my blood. #SafetySur
Our family has always served this great country and I am extremely proud of all my family’s accomplishments and their continued vigilance on safety.

So…this just happened to me.
Twitter will now track the activities from
all your OTHER apps on your smart phone/tablet.
That’s right, Twitter will use:
your FourSquare/Swarm geolocation data to target you for ads.
your pictures to see what you take pictures of to target you for ads.
your songs to see what music you listen to so they can target you for ads
your Instagram photos to see who likes them so they can target ads to them.
your airlines apps so they can serve you targeted ads on your flights
your phone calls to see who/where you call so they can target ads to you/them.
You get the idea.
From Twitter’s EULA: “…collecting and occasionally updating the list of apps installed on your mobile device so we can deliver tailored content that you might be interested in.”
Creeped out? You know you can disable this feature through the Twitter app’s settings menu. Depending on the iOS:
For iOS device users: disable this through setting —> account “ —-> privacy —-> Tailor Twitter based on my apps.“
For Android users: settings “ —-> account —-> other —-> Tailor Twitter based on my apps.“
I get that Twitter would like to collect data with what I do using in the Twitter app. In fact, I expect it. However, I am a bit uncomfortable with Twitter collecting info from various other apps.
Not cool Twitter. Way to be
that creepy Uncle.
