The social network formerly known as Twitter and now called X, does not stop generating controversy and controversy as the days go by. Now we are going to talk about a new problem that most will not like, since it is related to the collection of personal data from users.
Since the tycoon Elon Musk made the decision to acquire the aforementioned social platform that was previously represented by a blue bird, the changes have been constant. He wants to adapt this social network to his tastes and to what he considers the millions of his clients need. However, the truth is that he tries make the most of the platform and sometimes it seems that it doesn’t think much of its users.
Among the modifications that have been carried out in recent times, the name change, for example, is striking. But at the same time there have been others related to usage policies, the most basic functions, or the tools available, as well as the payment methods. In fact, its current owner wants this to be a social platform that is used for multiple activities and modes of use. It even wants it to become a platform for shopping online or making video calls, among many other things.
Hence precisely the gradual arrival of new functions that will help us in these new and non-existent tasks in the Twitter of yesteryear. Some of these new tools are causing a lot of rejection by the regulars of the social network, while others are being well received. But it must be taken into account that for some of these new modes of use that are going to be implemented, certain personal data of the users are necessary.
Social network X will ask you for more personal data than ever
And it is that to carry out certain tasks that in the future we will be able to carry out here, more specific data will be needed from the users who have an account. That is precisely why we now know that the company is working on an increase in collection of personal datawhere they would even be added banking information. For example, and as you can imagine, this would be essential if we want to make online purchases through X.
What’s more, the possibility of collecting biometric authentication data of the users who take into account in this Musk social network. To all this we can add that the platform could also ask us for the level of studygod or our Laboral life. Let’s not forget that, as we told you just a few days ago, the social network X also wants to stand up to the popular LinkedIn when it comes to finding a new job.
As it could not be otherwise, many users may consider the need to communicate this personal data, more than anything for security and privacy reasons. In any case, we must take into account that the collection of all this will be optional, so we will have the possibility of giving this data to the old Twitter, or not. Despite the fact that the platform has a multitude of security measures implemented, these such sensitive and personal data They can put our privacy at risk. Hence, each one decides to provide all this information to the platform or choose to refuse.
