Wondering how to see sensitive content on Twitter? We've got you covered!
While posting sensitive content may get you shadowbanned or permanently banned on TikTok, Twitter is much more permissive. Twitter allows sharing graphic violence and consensually produced adult content as long as you mark your account/post as sensitive.
By default, the ability to see sensitive content on Twitter is turned off. However, you can change this setting to allow you to see sensitive content on Twitter. We will walk you through how to turn off sensitive content on Twitter.
How To See Sensitive Content On Twitter
While you have been using Twitter, you may have encountered warnings like, “This media may contain sensitive material,” “This profile may include potentially sensitive content,” or “The following media includes potentially sensitive content.” These are warning messages that need to be acknowledged before sensitive media can be viewed.
By placing sensitive tweets behind a warning message, people who don’t want to see sensitive media can avoid it, or make an informed decision before they choose to view it. This way, you won't see something that you weren't expecting to see.
In order to see sensitive content on Twitter, you need to disable the sensitive content filter first. Follow the steps below to turn off the sensitive content filter on Twitter for Android and iPhone.
How To Turn Off Sensitive Content On Twitter Android
