A tweet recently posted on Netflix’s Twitter account has raised a few eyebrows.
While some Netflix users thought the tweet was funny, others questioned why Netflix would share their members viewing habits — Even if they withheld the members identities.
According to Entertainment Weekly, after receiving backlash, Netflix released a statement addressing the tweet:
In the statement, they reiterated that they are committed to respecting the privacy of their members and said the verbiage contained in the tweet was in regard to the trends of their members and not their individual viewing data.
Hmmm … let’s go back and re-read that tweet again. 53 people have watched A Christmas Prince daily for two and a half weeks …
Is 53 people really enough to call the viewing history a trend? Furthermore, they are talking about the viewing history of 53 individuals.
How do you feel about Netflix’s tweet? Do you think it crossed a line?
