Twitter is tracking you and they want to track more of your activity under the saftey umbrealla of personalized advertising. Much like other social networking sites such as Facebook the idea is that the more they know about you the more targeted ads they can show you. Which in turn, in theory, makes you more likely to click on such an ad which will generate more revenue for the site.
Log into Twitter.com
Go to Settings and find the two options Personalization and Promoted Content. Uncheck them both.
For now that’s all you have to do to stop Twitter from ‘Personalizing’ Twitter for you based on external activity.
