The Federal Trade Commission today issued a clarifying statement regarding its recently announced ruling that Twitter had not lived up to its promise of years past to protect consumers’ personal information.
Version 2 of the policy, which the FTC helped draft and ultimately approved, lacks any remotely similar expression of concern.
A source inside Twitter, speaking on condition of anonymity, reports that Twitter pressed the FTC to include its sentiment of concern in Version 2. The FTC shot that down however, insisting that the new policy “contain only language directly or indirectly relevant” [to the settlement].
