it's eternally stunning that there are millions of dollars poured into 'data collection' when, according to twitter, these are my Interests

yeah

if you'd like to fuck with twitter's ad algorithms, i highly recommend going here and unchecking every single box: twitter.com/settings/your_twit

@itsnero big water fan over here. check my h2osona

@irisjaycomics i love horses so much they had to list em twice!

@itsnero Also, check back a few minutes later. It will have re-checked most of them. You have to uncheck them in sections over a few hours. And even then, they periodically add completely random ones back in.

Almost as though the entire "anayltics" industry is a completely made up scam 🤷

re: the hell that is twitter 

@itsnero tbh those boxes already make a pretty fucked up targetting profile that doesn't look like me at all ^^

@itsnero the algorithm has detected that you like: hot dog

the hell that is twitter 

@BestGirlGrace not comics. not lgbtq issues. HOT DOG !

@itsnero I assume it detected you liked the spinning kind of top, but either way it's a bizarre demographic for advertisers to target

the hell that is twitter 

@itsnero the only ones i left checked on mine were: bread, egg & milk

Im a shopping list, twitter
