How to Protect Tweets



In this tutorial, we will teach you how to protect tweets. Protected tweets allow only the people who you approve to receive your tweets. The tweets that you will be making in the future will not be available publicly. However, tweets that you may have posted previously might still be available publicly.

Step 2 – Protect my tweets option
Once the setting page opens, scroll down a little till you come to the tweet privacy section. Over there, you can find the “protect my tweets” option. What this option does is that only the people who you approve will receive your tweets. The tweets that you will be making in the future will not be available publicly. However, tweets that you may have posted previously might still be available publicly. Check the “protect my tweets” option in order to avail this option. Once you are done, go to the very bottom of the settings page and click on the save changes button.
