Facebook and Instagram have been lashing out at Apple iOS features since its announcement. But Twitter chose a much polite way to request their users to enable ad tracking on iOS. 

As MacRumor reported, after updating to 8.65, Twitter will send a pop notification to its users that read, "keep ads relevant".

The whole notification stated, "Keep ads relevant to you by allowing Twitter to track data from other companies on this device, like apps you use and websites you visit."

When you will tap on 'Continue', it will bring you to App Tracking Transparency settings. Twitter will also send a support link along with its current App Privacy Policy to its users describing why it needs permission.

Facebook and Instagram have been very vocal since Apple has announced this update.  Now, mobile apps have to ask for the permission with the new iOS update to 14.5. Flurry Analytics said in a report that only 5% of iOS users in the US are allowed apps to track other apps.
