Every single cookie category on @techreview@twitter.com is set to ‘always active’ using a @OneTrust@twitter.com tool. This isn’t consent for non-essential purposes. It isn’t choice. But it is utterly utterly disrespectful. Unethical.

You can’t even access a privacy policy as currently configured.

Not only is the practice, IMHO, unethical @techreview@twitter.com @OneTrust@twitter.com it doesn’t meet EU data protection and ePrivacy law. But you probably don’t care - you probably think no-one is going to enforce such law against you

I mean, it’s impossible to access the privacy policy unless a visitor selects the X (& that is NOT consent) 🤷‍♂️🙇‍♂️ And that privacy policy? Someone made an error surely? It seems that it should have read “Your privacy is NOT important to us.”

And here we have it. At least @techreview@twitter.com is honest enough to say it doesn’t give a fig leaf for EU law.

So. Block like crazy when visiting @techreview@twitter.com
