Twitter safety features

Feel safer as you start your own conversations on Twitter with help from these features.

Mute

Hate spoilers? Us too. You can mute an account while remaining a follower. 

Try muting words, topics, or conversations to stop seeing content or notifications related to what you’d rather avoid.

 

An example of what the mute and block icons look like on the Twitter mobile app

Block

Control who can see your Tweets and what Tweets you see by blocking accounts.

When you block an account, they can’t see your Tweets, direct message you, or follow you. It also means you can’t follow them unless you unblock.

Report

See something off? Report abusive Tweets or accounts to us.
