Twitter is useful for people trying to express emotions and ideas in a short format, but it can also be a breeding ground for hate speech and foul languages. We know you are tired of seeing these things on your feed. Wouldn’t you be glad if I tell you there is a way to stop these from appearing on your feed? You can now block certain words from appearing on your feed. This feature can block the word, as well as the entire tweet if it contains one of your blocked keywords. Here’s how to block tweets containing certain words.
Follow the steps below to block tweets containing certain words
Step 1: Access Twitter app’s notification settings. To do so, you need to tap on the tab with a bell icon located on the top of your screen and then on the gear icon you’ll see on the bottom of the notification tab that you are currently on.
Step 2: Tap on “Muted words”. This will open a new page.
Step 3: Now, you can add keywords that you want to be filtered from your feed. To do so, tap on the “+” icon located at the bottom right corner of your screen. Here, you can type the words you would like to block. You can block a single word, username, hashtag, or even a phrase. Make sure you tap on “Save” to make the changes take effect.
This is it. This is how you can block tweets with certain words. If you have entered a keyword that you don’t want to block, don’t worry, you will have a chance to adjust the words, phrase, hashtag or username you’ve blocked. The keywords you’ve block will not appear in your feed regardless who tweeted it. You can even adjust the duration you want to block a certain keyword.
