How to stop the most annoying notifications from Twitter

Here’s a couple o thing you can do to stop the notifications you don’t need to see from Twitter.

We love Twitter, but as any other social network, it has the habit of abusing notifications to lure you back.

But, the good news is that it offers you the necessary options to disable the notification you don’t need.

You have to clearly separate the good notifications from the bad ones. A good notification is one that you really need to see. Like when someone sends you a direct message or you receive a reply to your tweets.

A bad notification is often one that you can easily live without – like the ones about other people or topics that are not that useful most of the time.

So we need to top this kind of notifications.

Here’s how:

🐦 Open the left side menu by tapping on your profile picture;
🐦 Tap “Settings and privacy” and go to Notifications;
🐦 Once there open “Push notifications”;
🐦 Now scroll down until you see the “Recommendations from Twitter” section and disable both “Topics” and “Popular in your network” options;
🐦 You can even disable “News” if you don’t care about them.

As a golden rule, any notification that has a vague description or doesn’t sound familiar  is one that you can leave without. The less notifications, the better.

  2. What I want to know is not how to stop push notifications entirely, but how to stop the intrusive ones that drop down into whatever other screen or app I’m looking at.

  4. How the notification displays is controlled by your operating system (Android or iOS), so you’ll need to go into system settings to change that, IF it can bechanged.
