Remember this viral tweet from Netflix we told you about yesterday where they denied the claim in the New York Times story on Facebook and privacy that said the movie streaming company had accessed users’ direct messages?

It turns out the statement, “We’re not the type to slide into your DMs” was a total lie and the company had to admit later that they did use this information. From the New York Times:

“Netflix said it didn’t have access to Facebook messages, but Facebook documents show Netflix had the ability to do just that. Netflix then acknowledged that it did access personal messages, but only for sending and receiving movie and TV recommendations.”


If you can’t trust the person tweeting for Netflix, who can you trust?

Reminder: NEVER TWEET:
