Netflix Defends That Controversial 'A Christmas Prince' Tweet

But the A Christmas Prince fans weren't the only ones called out by the year-end review, such as the single Netflix user in the United Kingdom who has watched Bee Movie a total of 357 times. In particular, they called out the 53 people who watched the holiday film every day for the 18 days leading up to December 10.

Netflix needs to educate millions of subscribers about what data it collects, how user data is protected, and how it balances statistical data collection with privacy rights.

. However, if you're into a more "scary" or genre-like movie, Netflix also has A Christmas Horror Story, Red Christmas, and Gremlins.

But the tweet didn't quite go as planned - with Twitter users criticising Netflix for appearing to reveal confidential viewing habits.

"Why are you calling people out like that Netflix", she inquired, to which the service responded with a "just want to make sure you're okay". As you may have guessed, there were a few "Big Brother" references and the word "creepy" was used on more than one occasion. You can guess what happens next. Whatever be its response, one thing it must do is accurately informing users about its data collection practices, how it stores such data, and who gets to access such data so that its millions of users don't feel violated when it posts similar tweets in the future.

'I liked this tweet because it's good to be reminded that huge unaccountable companies use our personal data to dunk on us both literally and figuratively, ' wrote another Twitter user.
