Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to use your information in, and as a result to transfer it to and store it in, the United States, Ireland, and any other country where we operate.

Basic Account Information: When you create or reconfigure an account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. On the Twitter Services, your name and username are listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. Some Twitter Services, such as searching and viewing public user profiles, do not require registration.
Contact Information: You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable Services, for example, for login verification, Twitter via SMS, or Digits by Twitter.

Your privacy settings control who can tag you in a photo on the Twitter Services. If youb ve shared information, like direct messages or protected Tweets, with another user who accesses the Twitter Services through a third-party service, keep in mind that the information may be shared with the third-party service.
