Victims of the GDPR. Twitter blocks “old” children
Recently, the GDPR has entered into force. Most social networks and large organizations were not ready to meet new requirements. But Twitter is not at a loss …
To comply with the new regulations, Twitter began blocking the user, whose age was under 13 years of age at the time of registration. The specified date of birth guides him, respectively, many of those users are already far behind 13.
This is the only major social network that has decided to take such a desperate step. This is explained by the fact that the network does not have a tool that separates content created by users older than 13 and younger.
But it is not all that bad. Twitter works for the future. Some blocked users have restored their accounts, showing documents confirming their age.
On the example of Twitter, we can observe how the GDPR “mows” users that are not prepared to radical measures.
