How do I protect my account from harmful content and unwanted interactions?


Twitter is committed to making it easy to report unwanted or unhealthy content. If abusive behavior happens, we want to make it easy for people to report it to us. Multiple Tweets can be included in the same report, helping us gain better context while investigating the issues to get them resolved faster.

 

How to report abusive content on Twitter

 

You can proactively label Tweets that may contain sensitive content — from violence to graphic media — and customize the content you see on Twitter. 

 

Understand your media settings

 

Conversation settings give you the option of who can reply to your Tweet – everyone, only people you follow, or only people you mention. You can also remove yourself from unwanted conversations with Unmentions, and choose to Tweet to a smaller crowd with newly released Twitter Circle.

Taking the extra step to protect your account is always a good idea. You can protect your account — from a strong password to two-factor authentication — to help deliver peace of mind.

How do I make sure what I read and share on Twitter isn’t fake or false?

How do I make sure what I read and share on Twitter isn’t fake or false?


We work to proactively identify and label misleading content so you can have greater context and clarity around the information you see and share. We work to elevate factual information across our platform including context to explain why a Topic is trending and provide transparency around claims that have been confirmed to be false by independent, subject-matter experts.. 

 

How Twitter addresses misinformation

 

Automated accounts, often referred to as “bots,” perform programmed actions through the Twitter API. Examples of automated accounts you might see on Twitter include bots that help you find vaccine appointments and disaster early warning systems. Developers who run bot accounts have the option to apply a automated account label to help you identify if an account is a bot or not.

Out of hundreds of millions of Tweets a day, Moments surface the best of what’s happening on Twitter. We aim to uphold high standards of accuracy, impartiality, and fairness in our curation. Moments are intended to feature compelling, original, and diverse content. When selecting Tweets and video for a Moment, we consider the content and media as well as the avatar and username of the poster.
