Twitter has updated its privacy policy to simplify the legal lingo in a last push before it is being taken over by Elon Musk.

The company said that it simplified the wording of its policies so users can understand its terms of service more readily. 

It also updated the section pointers on its websites for easier navigation and split the content into three categories: data collection, use and sharing. 

The new Twitter Data Dash is an added privacy education game that takes users through its policy in 2D.

“Through Twitter Data Dash, we hope to encourage more people around the world to take charge of their personal information on our service and maybe even have a little fun in the process. Transparency is core to our approach and we want to help you understand the information we collect, how it’s used, and the controls at your disposal. We hope Twitter Data Dash introduces a fun and interactive way to learn about a topic that has historically been anything but,” the company wrote.

It’s a more fun and engaging way for youngsters interested in its policy to learn more about it.

Twitter is also working on reimagined privacy iconography with visual symbols that represent core settings related to security and privacy.

It’s not entirely clear if these settings will entice more users to check out its terms, but it’s a good effort toward even greater transparency.
