Twitter Settles with FTC on Failure to Protect Consumer Info


Tom Usher wrote or added | There must be something here they aren't telling us. What happens if Twitter fails during the 20 years? Certainly after 20 years, they aren't allowed to mislead people. Couldn't the writers/editors at the FTC anticipate the hanging questions this insufficient information would raise, or have they left out the details on purpose?

'Under the terms of the settlement, Twitter will be barred for 20 years from misleading consumers about the extent to which it maintains and protects the security, privacy, and confidentiality of nonpublic consumer information, including the measures it takes to prevent authorized access to information and honor the privacy choices made by consumers. The company also must establish and maintain a comprehensive information security program, which will be assessed by a third party every other year for 10 years.'
