How to unblock “potentially sensitive content” on Twitter.
Twitter blocks some tweets with a “potentially sensitive content” warning. You can disable this warning, even on an iPhone or iPad, where the option isn’t normally available. You can also turn off sensitive content warnings on your own tweets.
What is “sensitive content”?
Twitter this warning label is for “potentially sensitive content. . . like violence or nudity.”
To be frank, Twitter is a more than anything social network compared to Facebook. While Twitter bans “excessively gory” media, “media featuring sexual violence,” and illegal content, pretty much anything else goes.
By default, Twitter restricts this media with a warning such as “This media may contain sensitive material,” “This profile may contain potentially sensitive content,” or “The following media contains potentially sensitive content.”
If you don’t have a Twitter account, you’ll need to create one and sign in to change this setting.
How to bypass the “Sensitive Content” warning
Turn off the sensitive content warning in Twitter’s privacy settings. You’ll also find these options in the same place on the Android app, but they’re not available on the Twitter app for iPhone and iPad. However, if you change the settings on the web, the Twitter apps for iPhone and iPad will show you sensitive content without warnings.
To disable the warning, go to the Twitter website and click menu > Settings & Privacy > .
Under Security, enable the “Show media that may contain sensitive content” option to disable the tweet warning.
How to show “sensitive content” in searches
Tweets with sensitive content are normally hidden from search, but you can enable them if you prefer.
To do this, go to the Twitter website and click menu > Settings & Privacy > Content Preferences > . Uncheck “Hide sensitive content” here.
How to remove the warning from your own tweets
To prevent Twitter from marking the media you upload as sensitive, select menu > Settings & privacy > Privacy & security. Make sure the option “Mark media you tweet as containing material that may be sensitive” is unchecked.
This option is available on the web and Android app, but not on the Twitter app for iPhone and iPad.
Please note that Twitter reserves the right to permanently enable this option for your account if you abuse this option and upload sensitive media without labeling it as such. If you can’t turn it off, that’s why.
If you don’t want to see sensitive content, don’t worry, that’s the default setting on Twitter. Just make sure the “Show media that may contain sensitive content” option is turned off and the “Hide sensitive content” option for searches is enabled.
