yeah, cookies are evil. to be fair, iirc we gave points to twitter for explicitly stating that you may disable cookies, and that some of the functionality will still work, but maybe not everything.
'personalize the service for you' is a euphemism for profiling. allowing third party cookies is really evil, but afaik, 49 out of the 50 biggest websites do set cookies, and a lot of them set cookies for third-parties.

→ Twitter does not require cookies to function
point-OR7vkW34mm4 is now [not bad] rather than [good]
Twitter does not mention third-party cookies. Do they use them?

Third-Party Service Providers: Twitter uses a variety of

the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These
