Somebody's [Twitter] Already Using Verizon's ID to Track Users

(ProPublica): http://www.propublica.org/article/somebodys-already-using-verizons-id-to-track-users

    "Twitter's mobile advertising arm enables its clients to use a hidden,
     undeletable tracking number created by Verizon to track user behavior
     on smartphones and tablets ... This controversial type of tracking,
     known in industry jargon as header enrichment, is the latest step in
     the mobile industry's quest to track users on their devices. Google
     has proposed a new standard for Internet services that, among other
     things, would prevent header enrichment."
