GDPR

From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-49981981

"Unusually, the company is not proactively contacting customers directly to inform them of the breach."

Twitter, which has its European headquarters in Dublin, would not confirm whether or not it had notified the Irish Data Protection Commissioner, other than to say it was communicating with regulators “where appropriate”.

Under Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), users must be informed if data is used for a purpose other than what it was intended for.
