Twitter warns of a hoax blocking the user account

showing "2007" as the date of birth on Twitter, you'll have access to hidden features. This is what many people want to make believe to the users of the social network since a few days. They publish tweets in which they claim that change his birth date to 2007 allows us to obtain new colors, administrators privileges, or a certified account. It is impossible to know how many users have been victims of this hoax, but the latter is widespread enough for Twitter's intervention. On Tuesday, the social network has published a warning message on its official Twitter account Support. "We have noticed that there was a hoax that was trying to encourage people to change their birthdays on Twitter on their profile for 2007 in order to unlock new colors. Please, don't do it. You will just be disconnected because you are under the age of 13 years".

the Account is blocked for non-compliance of the required age

In reality, the purpose of this hoax is to get the victim to a user under 13 years of age with Twitter. However, it is prohibited to register on the social network below that age. Result: the account is automatically blocked. The user must then take several steps to prove his / her age. It can indicate the social network that his account has been blocked by mistake, but it must then send a copy of his identity card to prove his age. People who do not wish to pass their id card to the social network do not have other choice than to create a new account.

in The United States, under the law, COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act), Twitter requires that all users be at least 13 years old to create an account. This u.s. law limits the collection, storage and processing of data provided by a child under the age of 13 years. In France, it is even more complicated since the implementation of the general regulation, the european protection of personal data (RGPD) last may. The RGPD, which restricts the ability to collect information on young internet users. Twitter had decided to block the accounts of all users who indicated they were under 13 years of age at the time of registration. This age limitation had proved to be problematic for many users, the major, who had been banned from the social network because of the date of birth indicated at the time of the creation of the account. Users who are under the age of 16 years are required to seek parental permission for the use of their personal data. The RGPD is presumed that a user under the age of 16 years cannot be the subject of the collection of information on the Internet without the explicit consent of his parents.

In 2006, another hoax had had disastrous consequences for the victims fallen in the panel. People on the forum 4chan urged users to delete the system directory Microsoft Windows (System32) from their computer. However, the latter is essential to the functioning of the Windows operating system. Without him, the computer was not working at all. Finally, to really change the colors on her Twitter profile, simply click on the button "Edit profile" to the right, and then choose the color of the theme to the left.
