Our employees not monitoring Direct Messages: Twitter
San Francisco, Jan 17: Twitter has denied claims that its employees are monitoring Direct Messages (DM) exchanged among its over 300 million users on its platform. In a statement, the micro-blogging platform denied claims made by conservative activist group Project Veritas that employees from the company monitor private user data, TechCrunch reported on Wednesday. “We do not proactively review DMs. Period. A limited number of employees have access to such information, for legitimate work purposes, and we enforce strict access protocols for those employees,” Twitter said in the statement.
