Twitter Data Cache. Am informed by Twitter that Firefox is retaining my data beyond 7 days. What do I do to clear it and who's responsible for the breach?

We’re looking into this Twitter bug right now, but rest assured that when you use Firefox your cached data stays on your device. So if the data stayed in your cache, that would only have been viewable on that device.

Second, why is this just Firefox? The technical details are complicated but the high level is pretty simple: caching is complicated and each browser behaves somewhat differently; with the particular way that Twitter had their site set up, Chrome, Safari, and Edge don’t cache this data but Firefox will. It’s not that we’re right and they’re wrong. It’s just a normal difference in browser behavior. There is a standard way to ensure that data isn’t cached, but until recently Twitter didn’t use it, so they were just dependent on non-standard behavior on some browsers.
