Are your tweets public?

When you join up for Twitter, your tweets are automatically made public; anybody may watch and participate with them. If you want to secure your tweets, go to your account settings and do so. This will allow only those who have been allowed access by you to see your updates.

Who sees my tweets if I have no followers?

Only your existing followers will be able to read your tweets if you secure them and make your Twitter account private. Accounts with protected tweets need a follow request from each user. This means that unless someone follows you, you won't see their tweets.

The only people who will be able to see your tweets without following you are those who are listed as "followers" of users whose tweets you want to see. These users' approval is required before your account can be made public. As long as these users approve your request, they will receive an email notification when you publish a new tweet. They will also be given the option to decline the follow request if they feel it isn't appropriate for some reason. Users must click on the Follow button in order for you to be notified when they start tweeting. It is important to note that once you have followed someone they may choose not to follow you back.

In addition to people you follow, certain other users may see your tweets before they are published if they are set to be seen by all followers (or anyone else) on your profile. For example, if a user has mentioned you in a comment on one of their own tweets or comments on one of yours, that person will be able to see any tweets you post from then on.

How do I make sure that my parents don't see my public tweets?

Before you start tweeting anything private or confidential, we recommend that you and your parents create an account sharing details only between you. This way you can communicate privately and your parents won't see any of your personal information.

Once you've done this, go into your settings and change the visibility of your public profile to only "friends". Then, when you want your parents to see what you're doing, ask them if they want to be given access to your account. If they say yes, log in as one of your friends and give your parent's account admin status. They'll now be able to see all of your public tweets.

Changing your privacy settings should never be done without your parent's consent. For more information about how Twitter uses data, please read our privacy policy.

What’s the difference between public and protected tweets on Twitter?

Tweets that are protected are only viewable to your Twitter followers. To protect a tweet, click the lock icon next to the tweet you want to protect and select "Protect this Tweet". You can also do this by visiting the tweet's details page. When you visit a protected tweet for the first time, you will be asked if you want to grant access to it.

Is a Twitter account private?

You may make your Twitter account private, allowing only the individuals you wish to view your posts to do so. Public Twitter accounts are visible to both site users and anybody searching the internet who sees your profile. Making your Twitter account private is as simple as a few clicks or taps in your settings menu. Before you can make changes to your public profile, you will need to verify your email address by clicking on a link that Twitter sends to it. Only then will you be able to make changes to your public profile.

Can people see your feed on Twitter?

Only your followers will be able to see the media in your Tweets if they are protected. Links to publicly posted material on Twitter are not password-protected. Anyone who has access to the link will be able to view the material. Media files such as JPEGs, GIFs, and videos can all be shared directly from your computer.

If you want certain people to only see some of your tweets, you can include the relevant links or images in the tweet itself. For example, if you wanted your mother to see one but not another version of a photo, you could send her the first version with the text "Hide this photo from my followers" and the second version without that warning. She would then only see the second image.

Finally, if you want complete control over who sees what, you can set up multiple accounts for different purposes. For example, one account could be dedicated to business contacts while another could be personal. Only follow people you know or have permission from them to follow. This way you can make sure your private information is kept private.
