Stop Twitter guessing your age and gender
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.
