Twitter is notified whenever you visit one of the more than 20 percent of sites on the web that include Twitter widgets. Turn off the flow of your data to them! Twitter Disconnect blocks all traffic from third-party sites to Twitter servers but still lets you access Twitter itself.
With all that is going on currently in the news, a lot of people are double checking their own activity and wondering to themselves, “who might be watching?”. Now, I highly doubt anybody cares to know you are looking up fried chicken recipes – but sometime feeling more secure is enough to make you feel better.
So want to gain a little ‘bit of your privacy back? You can pick up the Twitter Disconnect add-on from the Firefox Add-on website.
