Description

Sometimes, while using the Twitter android app, you’ll randomly be asked to opt in for personalized ads without a clear button to deny them and no way to exit out of the prompt (not even by the system’s back button!) until you drag the prompt up, uncovering a small “Keep less relevant ads” text button.
