How to access your Twitter data
Reviewing your Twitter data can give you insights into the type of information stored for your account. It provides an easy way for you to view details about your account, and to make changes as you see fit.
What type of information is available to me?
Your Twitter data provides you with a snapshot of your Twitter information, including the following:
Your profile: If you are logged in to your Twitter account, you will see information such as your username, any email address or phone number associated with your account, and your account creation details. You will also see certain information that you may have previously provided to us, such as your birthday and profile location. Whether or not you are logged in, you can also see certain information that we have inferred about your account or device such as gender and age range. You can update or correct most of this information at any time (your account creation details cannot be edited).
Your data: You will also be able to see the browsers and mobile devices associated with your account (if you are logged in) or current device (if logged out), interests that Twitter or our partners have inferred about your account or current device, and any Twitter advertisers who have included your account or current device in their tailored audiences. If you are logged in, you will also have access to other information such as a list of the places you’ve been while using Twitter, apps on your devices if you have Twitter’s app graph feature enabled, and your login history.
If you see login activity from an app you don’t recognize or that looks suspicious, you can go to the Apps tab in your settings to revoke its access to your Twitter account. The IP location shown is the approximate location of the IP address you used to access Twitter, and it may be different from your physical location.
You can also access additional information about your account elsewhere on Twitter while logged in, including the contacts imported from your address book, your entire Tweet history, the apps you have given access to your Twitter account, and the Twitter accounts you’ve muted and blocked.
