Promoted Tweets on your timeline

You may have come across ‘promoted’ Tweets when scrolling through your timeline. These are paid for adverts used by brands to reach targeted audiences.

Your activity on Twitter, including what you Tweet, who you interact with or what you search for may be used to customise advertising for you.

How to control promoted Tweets

There are several options available for you to use to help control what promoted Tweets you see on your timeline. To view these, hit the down arrow icon on a promoted Tweet.

The ‘I don’t like this ad’ option will send a notification to Twitter which will help control what promoted Tweets you see in the future.

Alternatively, you can choose to simply block the promoter of the Tweet, meaning you will no longer see promoted Tweets from that account.
