Twitter made an announcement today that they're "experimenting with new ways of targeting ads," which is their way of saying in so many words that they plan to track you around the web even when you are not on Twitter...Only to relay that information to advertisers so they can get more creative with their ads.
To turn off Twitter's new tracking:
- Log in to Twitter and visit your account settings page.
- Uncheck the box that says "Tailor Twitter based on my recent website visits."
- Uncheck the box that says "Tailor ads based on information shared by ad partners."
- Scroll down and click "Save Changes."
