With the massive explosion of social media, users have been increasingly concerned about their privacy online. One of the chief issues in this regard has been the ability of certain websites to track the users. A new feature ‘Do Not Track’ has been gaining traction in the tech world recently, which allows the users to opt-out of such tracking. Twitter has now announced support for this feature.


So hows does this feature work? For this, first of all the user needs to be using a browser that supports ‘Do Not Track.’ So far, Firefox has been quite prominent for its support for this particular feature. Next, the website that the user is surfing also has to offer the option for the user to avail it.

Now, Twitter has announced that if any users wish to opt-out of the social network tracking their activity, they can opt-out through the ‘Do Not Track’ feature. However, if a user wishes to avail the feature, he should be using Firefox.

The news were made official through Twitter’s official account and read, “The Federal Trade Commission’s CTO, Ed Felten, just mentioned Twitter now supports Do Not Track. We applaud the FTC’s leadership on DNT.”

In the past, a number of heavy-weight tech giants have already extended their support for the Do Not Track feature. These include AOL, Yahoo and Google.
