Privacy policies are some of the most important documents that most of us never read. One of the main reasons that most of us ignore them is that they can be long and difficult to understand.
But the most surprising development of the new policy is the fact that Twitter has also created an online game for it.
According to Twitter, the game is aimed at helping users understand the more complex parts of its policy. It also is meant to teach users about how they can take control of their Twitter experience by using a variety of settings.
The game isn’t exactly difficult—the enemies slow you down a little, but you don’t have a health bar or a limited number of lives. The challenge comes from collecting items throughout each level, which you need to progress to the next level.
Has the Policy Actually Changed?
There don’t seem to be any noticeable changes in the policy, at least at first glance. But, the policy doesn’t come into effect until June, and it seems strange that a policy that didn’t change in any meaningful way would have a delayed effectual date.
The only thing that might be notable? The policy explicitly states that how Twitter handles private data may be subject to change in the event of an ownership transfer. This could be a disclaimer made in anticipation of Elon Musk purchasing Twitter – an action that has been negotiated but not yet finalized.
