Twitter marks some Tweets with a ‘Potentially Sensitive Content’ warning, but users who want an unrestricted view in their feed can choose to disable it. The sensitive content labels are mostly reserved for Tweets that include violent or NSFW images or videos, as the company has strict rules against ‘excessively gory‘ media and ‘media depicting sexual violence.

Twitter is one of the largest social media platforms in the world, with more than 200 million daily active users and revenues of $5.1 billion, as of December 2021. While the company is relatively more open to graphic content compared to Facebook and Instagram, there are still certain restrictions that users have to abide by.

The sensitive content warning can be disabled from Twitter’s privacy settings on the Android app and the web, but not from the Twitter app for iPhone and iPad. However, iPhone and iPad users can still see sensitive content without a warning by changing the setting on the Twitter website. To disable the ‘Potentially Sensitive Content’ warning on the Twitter website, login to Twitter and then click on the More button on the left sidebar. Next, select the Settings and privacy option from the pop-up menu. Click on Privacy and safety and then go to Content you see. Finally, click the checkbox next to Display media that may contain sensitive content to disable the sensitive content warning on Tweets.

The content warning can also be disabled on the Twitter app for Android, and the process is very similar to how it’s done on the website. To disable the warning on the Android app, tap on the profile image at the top-left corner and then select Settings and Privacy from the slide-out menu. On the next screen, tap on Privacy and safety and then go to Content you see. Now, switch on the toggle next to Display media that may contain sensitive content. This will disable the sensitive content warning on Tweets.

Any Tweets with sensitive content are also hidden from searches by default, but users can remove this if they want as well. Once again, the process is applicable for both the website and the Android app, but not the iPhone or iPad. To get rid of the sensitive content warning from searches, head over to the website, click on More, select Settings and privacy, go to Privacy and safety, and tap Content you see. Finally, choose Search settings and uncheck the box next to Hide sensitive content. This will ensure that all content will be included in future search results on Twitter.
