Twitter released a new browser game on Wednesday that’s intended to help explain some of its privacy settings. You can play the game, called Twitter Data Dash Image: Twitter

The game has a delightful pixel art aesthetic. There are, of course, many shades of blue throughout the game, and I’m a huge fan of the character designs. (The location pin characters in one level are just great.) Platforming can be clunky, but the game is forgiving enough that it’s not too hard to attempt a tough jump a few times.

Twitter introduced the game as part of a bigger push around its privacy policy, which the company has rewritten. “We’ve emphasized clear language and moved away from legal jargon,” Twitter said on its Safety account. “Beginning today, you can see the updates to our privacy policy and terms of service in the app via settings and on our redesigned privacy policy site.”
