Twitter allows its users to download a file with all their personal data shared on their account. The feature, available through the app for iPhone (iOS) and Android phones, can help remove from the profile the data that, in case of account invasions, would cause future problems.
After requesting the information through the app, the platform sends a download link to the email used by the user to register the account. Check below how to request the download of a file with all your personal data linked to Twitter.
