Do you watch Netflix? It's watching you, too -- and closely

But its unintended outcome was that people kept picking up on the fact that Netflix knows that there are 53 people who have watched A Christmas Prince every day for 18 days.

"The privacy of our members' viewing is important to us". The tweet's a joke, but not a very amusing one if you consider what could easily lie ahead for consumers online: less privacy and more powerful corporations. "Not cool spying on your PAYING customers and then judging them in public".

There were some users, however, who seemed happy to engage with the streaming site's tweet, snapping back with their own witty replies, and even joining the Netflix account in a war of words in some cases. In it, they've confirmed that the figure in the tweet refers to collated trends - not individual viewing habits. They were not identified on social media, which obviously would be an unforgivable privacy violation, but it was specific enough-53 people, 18 days-to feel uncomfortable.

It's been a while since we've had a truly great Christmas movie. One user even compared the tweet to "bullying".

'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.

On Monday, Netflix responded to TheWrap's request for comment on the tweet (and the drama that it ignited).

So, is this an attempt by the streaming service to create buzz and get more people to watch yet another mediocre Christmas flick? In fact, Hallmark has a 2015 movie called Charming Christmas that may resemble Netflix's Christmas Inheritance, but that doesn't mean the new film still isn't worth watching. But, clearly, some people really like it.
