Are you someone who is looking out for a way to scroll through your feed without having to load each and every picture manually? If your answer is yes, then this article will exactly further help you with more information on how you can prevent image previews of the video's content from appearing in your feeds.
In this article, we will cover the detailed step-by-step method of blocking the previews on different devices, such as computers, android, or even iPhones.
First Method – You can do it using your phone application!
- Open your installed Twitter application on mobile and log in to your account (personal/professional) using your credentials to access your account feed. In case, if you are not logged in yet, then make sure you do so using your official or personal email address and the correct account password.
- Open the app menu right away from the left top corner.
- You should now be choosing "Settings and Privacy" from the given menu.
- From here, you need to go to the "Display and Sound" option. This is probably the first function you may find in the "General" section within this tab.
- Select the "Media previews," or you may click on the checkbox to disable previews. On the other hand, if you are an iPad or an iPhone user, then, in that case, you need to tap on the green switch in order to turn off the previews. In another way, if you are an Android user, click the checkbox to remove the checkmark. This is how Twitter will eventually stop displaying photos or video previews on your timeline.
Method 2: Use Twitter on a browser
- You need to understand what you can block. While you can't filter all picture previews on Twitter, you can limit potentially sensitive or objectionable items from displaying in your feed.
- Go to the official site of Twitter and sign in to your official/personal account over there using the right credentials.
- Also, if you are not signed in already, you may do it with your email and the password. You may also reset the password if forgotten.
- Now, you need to click on the "More" option that you may find on the left sidebar of your window.
- Go to the "Settings & Privacy" from the shown menu.
- Now, you need to tap the "Privacy & Safety; you may find this option under the "Settings" tab within the centre panel.
- Now, click on "Content you see." You may find this option from the right panel under "Your Twitter activity."
- You may now also uncheck the option "Display media that might contain some sensitive information: box. This option you can find on the right panel of your page. This is something that also prevents the platform itself, Twitter, from showing up potentially inappropriate content on your Twitter feed.
