Twitter sold your data (autostart video with sound) to Cambridge Analytic too? Say it isn't so, Joe! Just remember, if you are not paying for the service, YOU are the product. Of course, if we are having to tell you that, I have a bridge to sell you, along with your data. Twitter Inc. sold data access to the Cambridge University academic who also obtained millions of Facebook Inc. users’ information that was later passed to a political consulting firm without the users’ consent. Aleksandr Kogan, who created a personality quiz on Facebook to harvest information later used by Cambridge Analytica, established his own commercial enterprise, Global Science Research (GSR). That firm was granted access to large-scale public Twitter data, covering months of posts, for one day in 2015, according to Twitter.
