Twitter: No, really, we're very sorry we sold your security info for a boatload of cash

"When an advertiser uploaded their marketing list, we may have matched people on Twitter to their list based on the email or phone number the Twitter account holder provided for safety and security purposes. This was an error and we apologize."

Twitter assures users that no "personal" information was shared, though we're not sure what Twitter would consider "personal information" if your phone number and email address do not meet the bar.

So you're accusing Twitter of telling barefaced lies? You're alleging they DID share the data with advertisers, even though they deny it?
