Twitter users – get ready for something new on your feed.

The social media site says it will begin showing ads to users based on their browser history. It’s the next site to use cookie tracking programs. They allow advertisers to read the tiny files embedded in your browser when you surf the web.

Twitter says it will allow users to opt out of the tracking feature and block out some of that promoted content.
