By default, things you share on Twitter are public. This means anyone can see your tweets, even if they don’t follow you. However, if you want to control who can see what you tweet, there’s an easy option.

  1. Go to your profile page. If you’re using it on the mobile app, find and select the Gear icon. If you’re using a desktop browser, click the Profile icon near the upper-right corner, then choose Settings.
    selecting the gear icon
  2. If you use it on a mobile device, you’ll need to confirm which account you want to change.
