Twitter - Investor sking

The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has ordered Twitter Incorporation to pay a sum of $150m as a fine for violating the 2011 administrative order of the Commission over its decision to use the email addresses and phone numbers of its users for targeted advertising.

The suit noted that the misrepresentations violated the FTC Act. Therefore, the commission and Twitter agreed to a settlement of $150 million after Twitter had earlier told users that the data was gathered for security purposes.

Checks by Investors King show the verdict was announced by the U.S Department of Justice (DoJ) on Wednesday.  The US DoJ in its 20-page count filed in the US District Court alleged that Twitter asked users for their contact information to make their accounts more secure. The social media giant failed to tell users that it would also use their phone numbers and email addresses to help companies send targeted ads to them.

“Twitter obtained data from users on the pretext of harnessing it for security purposes but then ended up also using the data to target users with ads,” FTC Chair, Lina Khan accused.

Khan further said the practice affected more than 140 million Twitter users while boosting Twitter’s primary source of revenue.

The 2011 FTC order stated that Twitter “engaged in deceptive acts or practices” by misrepresenting how it handled user data and that the company lacked reasonable safeguards to keep accounts and data secure. Additionally, the order barred Twitter from misrepresenting “the extent to which [it] maintains and protects the security, privacy, confidentiality, or integrity of any nonpublic consumer information,” the order read in part.

Twitter’s settlement covers allegations that it misrepresented the “security and privacy” of user data between May 2013 and September 2019, according to the court documents.

In addition to the monetary settlement, the agreement requires Twitter to improve its compliance practices,” according to the statement of order.

According to the complaint issued, “Specifically, while Twitter represented to users that it collected their telephone numbers and email addresses to secure their accounts, Twitter failed to disclose that it also used user contact information to aid advertisers in reaching their preferred audiences.”

Twitter is a free service that generates its revenue majorly through advertising

The company generated $5bn in revenue in 2021 and said in a filing earlier in May that it had put aside $150m after agreeing” in principle” upon a sanction by the FTC.

TELCOS Decry Government’s Decision on Telephone Tax

Published

MTN

The Association of Licensed Telecoms Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) has said the recent move by the Federal Government to add a one kobo per second tax on phone calls is a misplaced priority. 

Investors King recalls that the Federal Government of Nigeria had, on Monday, said it will implement a one kobo per second tax on phone calls in the nation to fund free healthcare for the vulnerable. 

ALTON said it is a “bad fate” on the part of the Government and it is badly intended. “This is because when we came out that the government should look at our cost of operations and give us room to review tariffs, everybody treated us like an outcast. 

“The same government is now coming in a matter of days to say they are introducing new taxes. So, when they were saying to us that we cannot increase tariff because it is insensitive to the plight of the people and now, they brought another tax thing through the back door, we think it is bad fate and badly intended. So if we cannot review based on the impact it will have on subscribers, why are they bringing in another tax, still on subscribers. 

“Government cannot act in one way and say another thing”, ALTON said.

According to ALTON, this will affect subscribers because they get less value for what they pay for.

“It means now that when you buy a 100 recharge card, the percentage will be deducted from it and paid to the government. So it is shortchanging the people. What will happen is that operators will be mandated to collect this tax on their behalf and remit it to the government”, the association noted.

ALTON suggested that although the motive for the tax rate is understandable, the government should have looked elsewhere to source it.

It said: “Not telecoms subscribers whom the government has said its suffering because of living lately 

“We will not complain as operators because we will definitely remit, it is the subscribers that will bear the brunt”.

A Lagos State resident, Taiwo Popoola, in a conversation with Investors King, said the decision to increase the tax rate will be too hard for an average Nigerian to bear if implemented. According to him, only the upper class of the society will conveniently afford it. 

“On the part of the users, buying airtime will drastically reduce. People would resolve to use social media channels to reach each other and may, in turn, reduce the income of these telecommunication companies,” Taiwo said.
