Twitter has acknowledged the "Find Friends" feature on its iPhone app stores contact lists on its servers, echoing a recent controversy surrounding the Path iOS app.
After users opt to have the Twitter app search their phones, the company stores their address book's names, emails addresses and phone numbers on its servers for 18 months.
Twitter's policy stated that "Log Data" could include IP addresses, browser types, referring domains, pages visited, mobile carriers, device and application IDs, and search terms, among other activities.
Twitter says it will be updating its apps to clarify this process to users.
"We want to be clear and transparent in our communications with users," a Twitter spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times. "Along those lines, in our next app updates, which are coming soon, we are updating the language associated with Find Friends - to be more explicit.
"In place of 'Scan your contacts,' we will use 'Upload your contacts' and 'Import your contacts' (in Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android, respectively)."
