Twitter backs browser privacy project

Micro-blogging service Twitter has declared its support for an initiative that lets people browse the web without being monitored. The “Do Not Track” initiative stops firms tracking people as they visit several different websites. The monitoring is done to help advertisers craft ads to a user’s preferences and lifestyle. Blocking the tracking depends on websites honouring requests from users to browse anonymously. Do Not Track (DNT) has been brokered by the US Federal Trade Commission which wants people to be able to tell websites to stop gathering and sharing data when they visit.
