Stop Twit­ter guess­ing your age and gen­der

Web User - - Readers’ Tips -

I was pok­ing around in Twit­ter’s set­tings and found the weird­est thing. Click your pro­file pic­ture and then click ‘Set­tings and pri­vacy’. Click Your Twit­ter data and en­ter your pass­word to con­tinue. If you did not en­ter your age or gen­der when you signed up with Twit­ter, it guesses them based on your tweets.

It ob­vi­ously thinks my tweets have a fem­i­nine slant be­cause it says my gen­der is fe­male! It’s also clue­less about my age and thinks I am be­tween 13 to 54, which is a very broad guess if you ask me. There are links to change them if it both­ers you, but I like the fact that Twit­ter doesn’t know who I am.
