Taxonomy of Humans According to Twitter – The New Inquiry
Sam Lavigne constructs an art piece out of the ways Twitter tracks and tags its users. When you make an ad on Twitter (which anyone with an account can do) you’re given the option to target users based on their “interests” and “behaviors”. The “interest” categories are derived from user activity on the network, with Twitter automatically taxonomizing you by analyzing who you follow, what you tweet about and retweet, what you like, and so on. The “behavior” categories, on the other hand, rely on information from external organizations like Datalogix (now owned by Oracle), IXI, TransUnion, Epsilon, and Acxiom — data-brokerage services that track your online activity outside Twitter, as well as your offline real-world activity. By linking internal and external sources — a practice known in the adtech industry as “data onboarding” — Twitter is able to tag its users with categories provided by the data brokers.
