A New York Times article highlighting privacy concerns about Facebook has caused many to leave the social media site:
NYT investigation: Internal Facebook records show that the company gave Microsoft, Amazon, Netflix and other tech giants far more intrusive access to your personal data than it ever disclosed https://t.co/lT3yQpodkw
— The New York Times (@nytimes) December 19, 2018
Netflix tweeted a denial this way:
Netflix never asked for, or accessed, anyone's private messages. We're not the type to slide into your DMs.

Well that’s one way to put it! People had thoughts about all this:
curious if what netflix says is true https://t.co/HGPNLP6xGo

Netflix pushing back (rightfully so it seems) on that NYT headline. https://t.co/D0yoRdLmIN

can you say what information you did ask for?

Yeah, “We didn’t access your private messages” is a very specific response to a very specific claim in the article. What did @netflix access from Facebook at that time and what did they do with it? Clearly, they had some agreeement involving Facebook data.

Ron Howard: "Earlier that day, Netflix had read every single one of your private messages on Facebook." https://t.co/6JREhS53If

Yo Dude, what exactly did you slide into and maybe a discussion of invasion of privacy is not the time to talk like a teenager?
