Arranging the Settings of Twitter Notifications

It is far better to apply the settings of Twitter notifications properly from the very beginning than to deal with annoying messages over and over.


While this activity will take no more than 5 or 10 minutes of your time, you will not have to swear each time you get an email, SMS, or desktop notification you would not prefer to hide. So if you want to deal with this issue from the beginning, get to see the step-by-step guide that we have published below.

This way looks the page of settings of email Twitter notifications

  • On that page, you will get to see lots of settings of email notifications. If you want to turn the feature of email notifications at all, click on the “Turn off” button at the top of the page. If you want to keep receiving some of the notifications onto your email address, you need to arrange the settings. The page is divided into four parts: activity related to you and your Tweets, activity related to your Retweets, activity from your network, and updates from Twitter. Unselect the notifications you prefer not to receive. Once you have arranged the settings on this place, click on the “Save changes” button, placed at the bottom.
