Whattheuh.. App???

why

Twitter Inc. has acknowledged that after mobile users tap the “Find friends” feature on its smartphone app, the company downloads users’ entire address book, including names, email addresses and phone numbers, and keeps the data on its servers for 18 months(..) The disclosure from Twitter comes after another online social service, Path, came under fire last week for automatically downloading iPhone users’ address books without permission..Twitter’s current privacy policy notes that some categories of “Log Data” are stored for up to 18 months.

Twitter just went a bit more to the hated Facebook privacy corner. Guys.. be clear&open how you operate!
