Twitter "sent" Bytes usage
« on: August 21, 2019, 10:00:16 am »
How come searching twitter for a few minutes leads to a massive amount of sent MBs.
Received: 30.58 MB
Sent:  39.25 MB

A normal site such as eevblog only sends about 1/10th of the received bytes, I've checked a few times in the last few weeks, it's only a twitter tab that causes this where the send can be twice :o the received.
.  That took much longer than I thought it would.

They spy on you :)

Perhaps you could use dev tools to figure out what's being uploaded and where. Maybe they send some massive request for every keypress to fetch predictions, maybe they track your ever move through search results to figure out what you are interested in, maybe it's just a bug, hell knows.

Because it's the best place for people to make you feel bad for being born how you are.
I forget who I am sometimes, but then I remember that it's probably not worth remembering.

I've been trying to use FF's  Tools>Web Developer>Network  and not getting very far!
