Like all social networks, Twitter is no exception to the sponsored content rule. For many years now, companies have understood the full potential of these and have been using (and abusing) them. The blue bird network therefore personalizes your news feed by integrating targeted advertisements following your tweets, comments and other RTs.

However, this feature can become quite annoying, especially if you post a negative post about a brand... It's a safe bet that Twitter will offer you sponsored content from the latter in the days that follow. So, to avoid any embarrassment, we have produced this tutorial dedicated to teaching you how to secure and manage your privacy on Twitter by showing you the manipulations necessary to deactivate advertising targeting on Twitter.


Disable ad targeting on Twitter

  1. Open Twitter and Menu drop-down by clicking on your profile icon, top right. Then go to the tab Settings and privacy.


  2. In the left column, click on the heading Confidentialit茅 et s茅curit茅.

  3. Go down to the section Personalization and dataAnd click Edit.

  4. Just click the button Disable all.

  5. In the dialog box that appears on the screen, click Yes I am sure.

Ad targeting is now disabled. That doesn't mean you won't get any more ads鈥攕ponsored ads just won't be personalized to your interests and activity on Twitter.
