San Francisco, Dec 3 (IANS) Twitter has launched a Privacy Centre which will serve as a central place to disseminate information about its privacy and data protection related initiatives, announcements, new privacy products and communication about security incidents."We believe companies should be accountable to the people that trust them with their personal information, and responsible not only to protect that information but to explain how they do it," Data Protection Officer Damien Kieran and Kayvon Beykpour, Product Lead at Twitter wrote in a blog post on Monday."That's why we're launching the Twitter Privacy Center to provide more clarity around what we're doing to protect the information people share with us," they wrote.
