- You can turn off
- Once you’ve turned off retweets, you can turn them back on at any time.
- To mute retweets from an account, you’ll need to head to that account’s profile and click “Turn off retweets.”
It’s easy enough to get lost in an endless scroll through your Twitter feed, without having to sift through tweets from people you don’t even follow. Yes, we’re talking about the retweet.
But if someone you follow retweets everything in sight – and not much of it is interesting – you can mute their retweets, so you only see original content. Just note that you can’t turn off all retweets at once; instead, you’ll need to mute each account individually.
Here’s how to turn off retweets from accounts you follow, using Twitter’s desktop website or app.
