Today we are going to show you how to change sensitive media settings on Twitter. The app automatically blocks some tweets with a “potentially sensitive content” warning. You can disable it, both on Android and iOS devices, and remove the filter to see all content that appears on your account, whether or not it has sensitive content. You can also turn off any warnings that Twitter includes in your own tweet.
Twitter considers content that includes violence or nudity as potentially sensitive content, so it tries to protect other users who may not want to see those tweets by default.
How to change sensitive media settings on Twitter?
If you want to know how to change Twitter settings to view sensitive content, you will have to access the menu that you will find on the top left with three stripes, access ‘Settings and privacy’ and then enter ‘Privacy and security.’ We scroll down in that new menu and we will see that the option ‘Show photos and videos that may include sensitive content.” This appears activated by default. If we deactivate it, we will be able to see all this material that the platform previously restricted by default.
Our content can also be marked as sensitive, we can also enable or disable the Twitter warning. Unlike the other two, this function is disabled by default, so if we consider that our account offers content that is not suitable for all audiences, it will be useful to activate it to prevent other users from reporting our content to Twitter as inappropriate and risk a temporary suspension of the account. This warning is useful for users who specialize in creating and sharing information about military conflicts or for those whose content is adult-oriented.
This function is also found in the ‘Privacy and security’ submenu, just below the one we have previously deactivated to show photos and videos with sensitive content. If we activate it, every time someone comes across our tweets, a Twitter warning will appear warning them of the sensitive content offered by our account. It is up to you to accept to see it or not, and in this way you will cover your back in case someone decides to report what you publish. This way you’ve learned how to change sensitive media settings on Twitter.
