Twitter has officially supported Do Not Track option which is promoted by The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Mozilla. Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. It request websites visited by DNT enabled users not to track them over the web. By officially supporting DNT, Twitter has acknowledged to honor the requests by not tracking requesting users over the web.

Twitter Director of Growth and International, Othman Laraki, said in a blog post, “As always, we are committed to providing you with simple and meaningful choices about the information we collect to improve your Twitter experience.”

Twitter’s decision has been applauded by FTC. Mozilla, another proponent of DNT movement, said, “We’re excited that Twitter now supports Do Not Track and global user adoption rates continue to increase, which signifies a big step forward for Do Not Track and the web.”

Other major sites that have supported the Do Not Track movement includes Yahoo. Users of Yahoo can “express their ad targeting preferences” using the feature.
