Twitter has admitted that it has shared user data with advertisers without taking consents from the users. Twitter said that there was a bug in the platform since September 2018 that had targeted the information of the users who interacted with certain ads. They also clarified that the data did not contain sensitive information like user id or password. Twitter didn't reveal the number of people affected in it.
