Twitter states that it produces audio transcriptions of the conversations taking place on Spaces. The text is then reviewed for potential violations of the Twitter Rules. Twitter also uses this "to make improvements to the way the feature works."
It further reminds that all conversations on Spaces are currently public, so the data is not private anyway. The audio transcriptions might have hurt user privacy otherwise.
Another update in the policy involves Twitter Blue, the company's first-ever premium subscription offering that is currently restricted to Canada and Australia. The updated terms of service shed light on additional terms applicable to the service.
As for payments made on or through Twitter, it explains that it might receive information on the transactions. This might include when the payment was made or "when it is set to expire or auto-renew."
Twitter also brings to notice its new autoplay feature for videos. While many are already well versed of the feature through other social media platforms, some underlying policies are not well known.
Twitter explains that the videos that play on their own on a user's feed are often made by its third-party partners. So when the users watch or interact with such content from these partners, "they may receive and process some data as described in their privacy policies." Users wanting to avoid this can switch off the feature from Twitter settings.
