A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on your computer or mobile device. Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data and to operate our services. Cookies are not required for many parts of our services such as searching and looking at public profiles. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, many browsers’ settings can be set to decline cookies or alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie on your computer. However, some of our services may not function properly if you disable cookies. When your browser or device allows it, we use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our services, to monitor aggregate usage patterns, and to personalize and otherwise operate our services such as by providing account security, personalizing the content we show you including ads, and remembering your language preferences. We do not support the Do Not Track browser option. You can learn more about how we use cookies and similar technologies here.</p> <p>pageReference: /content/twitter-com/legal/en/privacy/chapter-2/chapter-2-3-tooltips---overlays</p> <p>Content:</p> <p>Not hungry?</p> <p>You can change your cookie settings in your web browser.</p>
Twitter is transparent about using session cookies and persistant cookies. But Twitter does not require cookies for most of the service to function. Remember that cookies are files on your computer: you can control and disable them.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to
collect additional website usage data and to improve our
Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our
Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles
or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to
your computer's hard disk. Twitter may use both session cookies
and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact
with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and
web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and
improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically
accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its
settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before
accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, some
Services may not function properly if you disable cookies.

I think this is of low importance but it's good to know. Do you think it
deserves to be mention?

The excerpt does not state that they do not need 3rd party cookies, but rather tells you that their service doesn't necessarily function correctly without cookies.
