There are a few options that you can use to try to increase your privacy, but you have look carefully in the app menus and options. This, I believe, it’s by default, so that users won’t find them too easy and use them.
One such option is the ability to hid when you’re online. You might want to to hide this so that you won’t get too many messages from your friends and followers.
