Hey readers! Inside Dev has its very own Twitter account, which you can check out here. I'll be sharing links to the newsletter as well as other additional, helpful stories, posts, and more. I'd especially love to use Twitter to promote you guys and create a bit of a community. I want to re-share your own interesting projects, posts, and more, so give me a follow and tweet me your own stuff!

In case you missed it earlier this week, I have also started to compile a Twitter list of web developer-related accounts that I would like your help with and I'd love for you to subscribe to! If you have any Twitter accounts to recommend, please shoot me an email at dev@inside.com or send me a tweet, and I'll make sure to follow. I'd love to use these as resources that can help me curate this newsletter better and make it more aligned with what you guys want to read about!

Have an amazing weekend! I will see you Monday!

2. Google has proposed a new set of privacy standards for users as a part of its Privacy Sandbox initiative, which is currently in development. Through these new standards, the tech giant hopes to both protect user privacy while simultaneously minimizing the harm on publishers and businesses. For example, Google proposes anonymously aggregating user information, tracking users by category as opposed to individually, and more. As it is in its early stages, however, the tech giant is currently asking developers, those in the general tech community, privacy advocates, and advertisers for feedback and ideas. - GOOGLE
