How to Turn Off the Sensitive Content Warning on Twitter?

It’s really simple.

It’s the same process for a desktop computer as for a mobile phone.

Open up Twitter on a browser or use the app, and then tap on your profile picture in the upper-left corner.

Then, scroll down through the menu and tap “Settings and Privacy”.

Twitter – Settings and privacy

In the Settings section, you’ll have many options to choose from. Go to “Privacy and safety”.

Now choose “Content you see”.

Finally, in the “Content, you see” setting page, check the box that says “Display media that may contain sensitive content”.

Twitter - "Display media that may contain sensitive content”
Twitter – “Display media that may contain sensitive content”

If it’s checked, you’ll be able to see NSFW content on Twitter without the warning appearing.

If unchecked, the “This Tweet might include sensitive content” warning will appear.

However, even if you do this, you won’t be able to search for NSFW content on Twitter.

By default, NFSW content is not enabled in Twitter searches.

To change that, go to Setting and privacy – Privacy and safety – Content you see (the same as before) – Search settings – Hide Sensitive Content (uncheck the box).

Twitter - Hide sensitive content
Twitter – Hide sensitive content

No NSFW content will appear in your Twitter searches, and you’ll be able to see it without any warnings popping up.

Conclusion

Twitter disables NSFW content by default. You won’t be able to see it without deactivating the “Sensitive content” option.

To do that, go to Setting and privacy – Privacy and safety – Content you see – Display media that may contain potentially sensitive content.

Check the box, and that’s it!

This will eliminate the sensitive content warning forever on the social media platform. Unless you uncheck the box in the future, the error won’t pop up again.

FAQ

What is NSFW content on Twitter?

Twitter disables NSFW content by default. You won’t be able to see it without deactivating the “Sensitive content” option.

To do that, go to Setting and privacy – Privacy and safety – Content you see – Display media that may contain potentially sensitive content.

Check the box, and that’s it!

This will eliminate the sensitive content warning forever on the social media platform. Unless you uncheck the box in the future, the error won’t pop up again.

What type of NSFW content is not allowed on Twitter?

Gratuitous gore that depicts gruesome or excessively graphic content is not allowed on Twitter. It’s considered sensitive media.

It doesn’t matter if you cover it with an NSWF sticker. Twitter won’t accept it.

Non-consensual nudity or sexual content is not allowed for obvious reasons.

Creepshots or upskirt photos, hidden cameras that film sexual acts or nudity, these aren’t allowed on the Twitter app.

Offering money for intimate photos or videos is, again, not allowed.

Violent sexual and serious graphical content is, in most cases, not allowed on Twitter.

There are a few exceptions here and there, of course. The Twitter app may allow it if it’s a medical or documentary reason.

It will still be plastered with an NSFW sticker, though.

What consequences are there for posting NSFW content on Twitter?

Did you know that Twitter may permanently suspend your account if you only post NSFW content?

Or if the vast majority of your posts are NSFW?

It doesn’t have to be against the rules even. The Twitter regulations on sensitive content could mandate it.

If your account is dedicated to posting sensitive content and they notice that, they may permanently suspend your account.

The consequence of a first-time violation of posting NSFW content not allowed on Twitter is the removal of that content and a temporary lock on your account.

They’ll permanently suspend your account without warning if you do it again.

There’s not much you can do besides appealing the decision.

However, they may still decide to keep the suspension.
