How to add a content warning on multimedia tweets

  1. Open the Twitter app and start composing the tweet.
  2. Tap on the flag icon on the top of the composition dashboard
  3. Select one or more warnings depending on your content from options like Nudity, Violence, or Sensitive.
  4. Once done, go back and tap on “Tweet”

Just like the name suggests, the content warning label will let viewers avoid certain upsetting or unsafe posts that they do not want to look at. Notably, Twitter just offers three warning offers including Nudity, Violence, or Sensitive. There should have been one more option of “spoilers” to let users steer clear of movie spoilers every time there is a Marvel or DC film release.

Before this system, viewers could only tap on the “Show” option to view media. Also, it was not allowed to put content warnings on text tweets. Additionally, you cannot see these warnings on TweetDeck yet.

For the unversed, Twitter is testing a new feature that will allow them to untag themselves from irrelevant conversations that they do not want to be a part of. This feature will be called the “leave this conversation” feature.
