X, Formerly Twitter, Plans to Collect User Biometric Data, Job, Education - Bloomberg:

“Based on your consent, we may collect and use your biometric information for safety, security, and identification purposes,” the company said in its new policy. X doesn’t define what it considers biometric, though other companies have used the term to describe data gleaned from a person’s face, eyes and fingerprints.

Of the many, many companies on this planet that I would not trust with biometric data, “X” comes pretty much top of the pile.
