Come chiedere i nostri dati a Twitter? Inviando un fax

Dopo aver chiesto a Facebook i nostri dati, proviamo a chiederli a Twitter.

Su privacyinternational c’è la guida step by step per chiedere a Twitter i dati del nostro profilo.

C’è una campagna di sensibilizzazione in atto, almeno per i cittadini Europei, abbiamo diritto ad avere accesso alle informazioni personali che Facebook e Twitter (e non solo) possiedono riguardo al nostro profilo, al nostro account.

Se sei cittadino Europeo ecco cosa fare per richiedere i tuoi dati a Twitter, ai sensi della Direttiva Europea sulla Privacy.

1) Inviare una e-mail (preferibilmente in Inglese) a privacy@twitter.com con il seguente contenuto (INSERIRE IL CONTENUTO PERSONALE NELLE PARENTESI QUADRE):

Subject/Oggetto: Access Request [il tuo indirizzo email] [Data]

CONTENUTO MAIL:

Twitter UK Ltd
100 New Bridge Street
London
EC4V 6JA
United Kingdom

To the Twitter UK Legal Department,

Re: [Inserisci il tuo Twitter username]

This is a request to access my personal data under Section V of the Directive 95/46/EC, transposed in Section 7 of the UK Data Protection Act.

As a Twitter user based in the European Union I request records of the following:

All personal data that Twitter holds about me, inter alia
All logs of IP addresses associated with my account (because these are bound to my password-authenticated account and are thus identifiable)
Any records of the contacts stored on my mobile device that may have been collected by Twitter via the ‘Find Friends’ function, or any other information collected from a Twitter mobile client
Any records of disclosures of personal data to other parties, including law enforcement (such records of disclosures themselves constitute personal data)
I request this information to be delivered in machine-readable form, to the e-mail address registered to my Twitter account.

Data Subject Authentication

My name: [INSERIRE IL NOME]

My current Twitter handle: [INSERIRE username in uso] (former usernames associated with this account are: [INSERIRE TUTTI gli username precedenti, se hai cambiato nome in passato])

My e-mail address: [INSERIRE INDIRIZZO e-mail da cui si invia la richiesta. Dovrebbe essere la stessa e-mail dell'account Twitter]

Please inform me, prior to processing this request, if you require a fee to be paid.

I look forward to receiving this information within 40 days. If you have any queries or questions regarding my request, please contact me by e-mail.

Yours faithfully,

[INSERIRE NOME]

2) Si riceve una auto-response da Twitter che dice “need to reply to this email in order to open a ticket for review”. Incolla il messaggio originale nel reply. Questo permette di aprire un ticket.

3) Twitter dovrebbe a questo punto contattare via e-mail con un messaggio più personalizzato:

Hi,

We’ve received your request for a copy of your information. First we need to check your identity to make sure we’re giving your information to the right person. Please send us a fax to +1-415-222-9958 with:

– a statement authorizing disclosure of the specific information you’re requesting
– your Twitter support ticket number, if you submitted a ticket for your request
– your Twitter username, e.g., @Safety or twitter.com/safety
– the email address on file for your account, and
– a scanned copy of your valid, government-issued photo ID

We use this information only to verify your identity, and we delete the copy of your photo ID once we’ve completed our check. If you don’t have or don’t want to provide your photo ID, we’ll try to work with you on another way to confirm your identity. However, this will delay our ability to respond to your request.

After we get your fax with this information, we’ll email the email address on file for your Twitter account to confirm your authorization. Once you respond affirmatively to that email, we’ll gather the information you requested and send it to you when it’s ready.

Regards,

The Trust & Safety Team
Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom Street, Suite 600, San Francisco, California 94107

p.s. If you have further inquiries, feel free to write us directly at privacy@twitter.com. Twitter, Inc. is responsible for user information and responds to user questions about their information as a courtesy and good practice. Twitter UK does not control user information in the Twitter service.

Chiede di inviare un FAX con una richiesta firmata in cui si fornisce anche il consenso a Twitter a “liberare” e consegnarci queste informazioni che ci riguardano. Deve contenere un esplicito consenso a Twitter e il permesso di fornire a noi le nostre informazioni
Esempio, una cosa del genere: “I consent to the disclosure of any and all personal information associated with my Twitter account, including log data, IP addresses, contact list information, data collected from my mobile device, and records of disclosure to law enforcement.”

Assicuratevi di includere sempre il vostro username (@NOMEPROFILO), la e-mail a cui si riferisce l’account e una scansione del documento di identità/passaporto con foto.

Anche se, in realtà, la foto non dovrebbero nemmeno chiederla, in quanto su Twitter molti profili Twitter sono anonimi o sono pseudonimi senza una reale identità ad essi collegata.

Twitter però insiste e pretende la foto del documento di identità.

Privacyinternational suggerisce di proteggere il diritto alla privacy oscurando nel fax tutte le informazioni del’ documento di identità che non hanno motivo di chiedere (data di nascita, luogo di nascita, numero del documento, ecc.) e di lasciare solo nome e foto.

Il numero di FAX di Twitter è +1 415 222 9958.

4) Quando Twitter riceve il fax, inviano una ‘request-for-consent’ via e-mail all’indirizzo con cui è registrato l’account.

Twitter-Legal Twitter-Legal@twitter.com

Hello,

Thank you for confirming your request for information about your
Twitter account. We’re gathering the information you requested and
will send it to you when it’s ready. It may take us a little time to
gather the information, and we appreciate your patience.

You may also access certain information about your account in real
time by making the following API calls while authenticated to your
Twitter account:

Account information:

https://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.json?screen_name=USERNAME

Accounts you follow:
https://api.twitter.com/1/friends/ids.json?screen_name= USERNAME
Accounts following you:
https://api.twitter.com/1/followers/ids.json?screen_name= USERNAME
Pending requests to follow you (if your Tweets are protected):

https://api.twitter.com/1/friendships/incoming.json

Your pending requests to follow accounts with protected Tweets:

https://api.twitter.com/1/friendships/outgoing.json

IMPORTANT: You must replace the text USERNAME in the URLs above with
your actual Twitter username. Do not include the @ symbol. For
example, if we were requesting information about our @Safety account,
we’d use the following URL:

E’ necessario rispondere affermativamente a questa mail. Solo quando Twitter riceve anche questa mail di conferma invieranno per e-mail tutti i dati del profilo da scaricare.

Possono volerci anche 30/40 giorni prima di ricevere i dati.

5) Ottenuti i dati personali, cercate di capire cosa vi è contenuto e cosa manca. In particolare, per quanto tempo Twitter ha conservato i log degli IP utilizzati? La privacy policy di Twitter dice che li possono trattenere solo per 18 mesi.
Ci sono dati che ti appartengono e che Twitter non ti mostra?

Privacyinternational chiede di segnalare a loro tutte le anomalie riscontrate.

I dati verranno inviati in un file zip abbastanza grosso allegato ad una mail.

Il contenuto della mail con i dati è questo:

We’re responding to your request for information about your Twitter
account @NOMEPROFILO. We’ve attached the following files:

that have no content between the PGP header and signature block,
indicate that no responsive records were found.

No records were found of any disclosure to law enforcement of
information about your Twitter account. It is our policy to notify
users of requests for their information prior to disclosure unless we
are prohibited from doing so by statute or court order. For more
information, please see our Guidelines for Law Enforcement at
http://support.twitter.com/articles/41949-guidelines-for-law-enforcement…

We searched for the specific information identified in your request
and have also provided other information associated with your Twitter
account. We have not provided all information that may be related to
you because of the difficulty of providing it, or because it may not
be to you or may reveal the nonpublic information of another user or
of Twitter. If there is other information that you are looking for,
please let us know so that we can consider your request. Our Privacy
Policy at http://twitter.com/privacy describes the information that
Twitter may collect and use and the limited circumstances in which
your private personal information may be shared.

L’utente Anne Helmond racconta la procedura e cosa ha ottenuto da Twitter.

Ha scoperto che Twitter possedeva tutti i contatti della rubrica dell’iphone, semplicemente per aver abilitato la funzione Find Friend. Se poi è sincronizzato con gmail, ovviamente anche quelli. Ecco come rimuovere questi dati da Twitter.

L’archivio contiene tutti i Tweet, ovviamente, non solo quelli che consentono le API e cioè i 3200 tweet più recenti.

C’è l’ID di ogni singolo tweet.
Per rivedere il Tweet su Twitter adesso basterà modificare questa URL: https://twitter.com/#!/username/status/tweetid
Cambia username con TUONOME e tweetid con il numero ID.

Questa è la visualizzazione del contenuto di un tweet:

I dati che Twitter rilascia sono in JSON, possono essere processati e analizzati.

Se inviate il fax a Twitter e richiedete i dati del vostro account, fatemi sapere come andrà, nei commenti, ok?
