Twitter is a social network whose popularity it has increased in recent years in Europe. The app is constantly updated, for example by clearly changing retweets. In this social network, it is common for there to be discussions, fights and many controversies, which tires a lot. Although there are ways to avoid having to see certain content.
On Twitter we find different filters, which allow disable certain words or hashtags. Using this option, the social network will hide the tweets where we find these specific words or hashtags. So we can filter out insults or content that we don’t want to see.

Disable words or hashtags on Twitter
When there are words that don’t interest you, like slurs or that are used to talk about a certain topic or a certain person, Twitter gives you the option to silence them. The same goes for hashtags on the social network. They are presented as a method for avoid seeing tweets on specific topics, which you don’t want to see, without having to block accounts or users for it. The steps to silence these words or hashtags on the social network are:
- Open Twitter on your phone.
- Click on the three horizontal bands at the top.
- Go to Settings and Privacy.
- Enter notifications.
- Go to Silent Words.
- Click on the “+” button.
- Enter the word or hashtag to block.
- Decide if you want to stop receiving notifications for tweets containing this word and if you want to hide these tweets from your feed.
- Select the length of time you want to turn off this word.
By setting this, you will not see any tweet using these words in your feed. In addition, the social network will never notify you if someone downloads a tweet with that word or hashtag in question. The time that said word is silenced is up to each user, as there may be terms that will be temporary, so you can silence them for a few days or weeks, and some forever.
A great way to personalize Twitter, making sure that topics that you find unpleasant or that disturb you do not appear in your feed on the social network. Moreover, whenever you want, you can add or remove words to your silent word list in the app.
