What happens when you post on Twitter

pracktica

A lot of people are using twitter, but what most don`t know is the chain reaction immediately starting after launching a Tweet. No matter what you post a bunch of greedy bots and search engines immediately are going to consume the generated data.

Is my tweet really gone ? Now I`m not that sure any more, …

Update: 02/25/2017 

I repeated the experiment using a direct message only involving an image link.
Immediately after posting Amazon ( ec2-54-151-42-39.us-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com ) made a backup of the tweet and the image on their servers. This prooves that Amazon has access to your private direct messages and possibly conversations. Concerned about privacy ? – at least the users should know about this.
What I`m more worried about…

-> Amazon has a 600 Million US $ contract with the CIA.

    1. Quite easy. (Compact version). You need a php capable server. On that server you create a php page that will log IP / host data when someone accesses it. I then sent a friend of mine the php url containing an image… some seconds later the specified Amazon IP accessed the image. I made some tests to verify that it was related to twitter.
