How To Make Your Twitter Account And Tweets Private
How to make your entire Twitter account private to the public and choose which of your followers can view your tweets.
Although influencers, celebrities, and businesses use their Twitter profiles to promote products, services, or even themselves, the popular social media platform is still built around a base of everyday users sharing the news and opinions they care about most.
If you’ve built a Twitter account with a follower list of close friends and family, you may be happy simply interacting with people you know, and uncomfortable with the idea of strangers being able to see your Tweets. In that case, you’re in luck, because it’s relatively simple to make your Twitter account completely private so that only your list of followers will be able to see what you’ve posted and who you’ve interacted with.
In addition to making your account private to non-followers, you’ll gain an extra layer of security, as you’ll also be able to manually approve which followers can see your posts. Here’s how to change the settings to make your Twitter account private:
- Go to the Twitter website.
- In the left tab, click More, then Settings and Privacy in the pop-up menu.
- Click the Privacy and Safety tab, followed by Audience and Tagging.
- Check the box next to Protect your Tweets.
- Click Protect to confirm your selection.
In the Privacy and Safety tab, you can find additional settings such as Discoverability, as well as manage who can send you direct messages, and more.
- Open the Twitter app.
- Tap the Settings menu in the top-right corner (gearwheel icon).
- Tap the back arrow to see the full settings menu.
- Tap Privacy and Safety and next, Audience and Tagging.
- Tap the slider to the right of Protect your Tweets, which will turn green.
- Finally, tap Done.
It’s worth pointing out that you may have to toggle a different tab in order to view the settings icon in the top right of the screen.
