Twitter tips: How to add content warning on multimedia tweets

Twitter users can now add a warning label to photos and videos on their platform. Warnings may be about violence or nudity. This feature is available for desktop, iOS, and Android apps of Twitter.

This step-by-step guide will show you how to put a warning message on your video or tweet.

How to include a warning message on multi-media tweets

  1. Start composing your tweet in the Twitter app.
  2. Click on the flag icon at the top right of the composition dashboard
  3. You can choose one or several warnings depending upon the content of your message.
  4. After you’re done tap “Tweet”.

The content warning label, as the name implies, will allow viewers to avoid potentially dangerous or upsetting posts. Twitter only offers three types of warnings: Violence, Nudity and Sensitive. To avoid spoilers, there should be another option for “spoilers”, so users can stay clear of any movie spoilers when there’s a Marvel or DC release.

To view media, viewers had to tap the “Show” button before this system was implemented. It was also forbidden to place content warnings in text tweets. These warnings are not yet available on TweetDeck.

Twitter has a brand new feature in development that allows users to remove themselves from conversations they don’t want to participate in. The “leave that conversation” feature is the name of this feature.
