How To Block Certain Words From Appearing On Your Twitter Feed
Twitter can be a wonderful place for people to express their emotions and chat with each other in a short format. However, it can also be a breeding ground for hate-filled comments, foul language, and a whole lot of political talk.
If you’re tired of seeing these things on Twitter, you’ll be glad to know that you can blow certain words out of your food. Not only will this feature block the words itself, but it will even prevent whole tweets from appearing if they contain one of your keywords. This will definitely help improve your overall Twitter experience, so I’ll show you how it works down.
Steps On How To Block Certain Words From Appearing On Your Twitter Feed
Access to Twitter notification settings
First, you need to access your Twitter app settings. When you use an iPhone, tap the bell icon at the bottom of the screen to do that. Next, tap the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen to raise the settings screen for your notifications.
If you use an Android phone or tablet, you can get to Twitter notification settings by tapping the bell icon exactly the same but it will get towards the top of the screen. From there, press the gear icon in the lower right corner.
Find the menu ‘Muted Words’
Next, select “Muted” if you are on an iPhone (Android users can skip this part). Then, regardless of what type of device you are using, choose “Muted Words” which will open a new page on your phone.
Block tweets that contain certain words
Now it’s time to add keywords that are filtered out of your Twitter feed. To do this, tap “Add” on an iPhone, or click the “+” button on Android. Both buttons are found in the lower right corner.
From here, you must enter a word that you want to block. This can range from a word to a phrase, a user name or a hashtag. However, you must enter these keywords in one at a time.
Once you enter a keyword, you have the option to customize the lock options. By default, tweets that contain your muted word, hashtag, username, or phrase are blocked indefinitely when they appear in your timeline or notes, regardless of who has tweeted the message.
However, you can decide where you want to mute these words, and how long you want them to be muted by adjusting the options that appear on the Mute Add screen. These options can also be accessed by tapping the word once it is in your mute list.
Once you’ve adjusted the mute options to your liking, be sure to tap the “Save” button at the top of the screen for your changes to take effect. You can then repeat this process for all other keywords that you want to block.
And that’s it! They will never see again that the Internet will take the Covfefe jokes too far or a certain president claim that the media will sell us wrong news. Obviously, use this for whatever you want dumb, but I know I’ll enjoy Twitter much more without all the political mems.
