How to unblock “potentially sensitive content” on twitter

Twitter has all kinds of accounts, posting different types of tweets, images, videos, and live streams. You will find accounts that promote kids’ content, funny memes, helpful information, etc. At the same time, there is no shortage of violent or adult accounts; some of them even verified by Twitter! The social media giant for safety has tools and algorithms that hide sensitive content. However, if you would like to see sensitive content on Twitter on iPhone or iPad, then here is how to do that.

What is Sensitive Content on Twitter?

According to Twitter, it is ‘potentially sensitive content that other users may not wish to see, such as violence or nudity.’

Whenever you come across such tweets that depict [email protected] acts and violence, you see a warning. It says, ‘This media may contain sensitive material. Your media settings are configured to warn you when media may be sensitive.

Similarly, when you visit a profile that posts such content regularly, you may see a warning. It says, ‘This profile may include potentially sensitive content. You’re seeing this warning because they Tweet potentially sensitive images or language. Do you still want to view it?

Now that we are clear with the basics, here is what you need to do, to see sensitive content on Twitter.

How to View Sensitive Content in Twitter on iPhone and Web

What if I don’t change my media settings and post sensitive media?

If one of your Tweets containing media is reported as sensitive, it will be sent to Twitter for review. If we find that the media wasn’t marked as being potentially sensitive at the time of the upload:

  • We may label the media as being potentially sensitive, or in the case of live video, remove the content entirely.
  • We may also change your account setting to Mark media you Tweet as containing material that may be sensitive so that future posts are marked accordingly.

You will be able to change your media settings on your account settings page, though this image and any other images that have been labeled will remain marked as potentially sensitive.В В

If you repeatedly upload media that is mislabeled, we may:

  • Label your media as having potentially sensitive content.
  • Permanently adjust your account setting to Mark media you Tweet as containing material that may be sensitive so that your future posts have a warning message users must click through before viewing your media.

Twitter may also use automated techniques to detect and label potentially sensitive media, and to detect and label accounts that frequently tweet potentially sensitive media.

What happens if my profile image is in violation of the Twitter Rules?

If your profile or header image contains content in violation of the Twitter Rules, we may temporarily suspend your account and remove the offending content. Repeat violations will result in a permanent suspension.

Additionally, your account may be locked if media in your profile is in violation of Twitter’s media policy. In order to unlock your account, you will need to follow our instructions and remove the media in violation. If your account has been locked, see this article for more information.

Can I appeal a decision made by Twitter?

If you are suspended for having graphic violence or adult content in your profile image or header image you can appeal by logging into your account and submitting an appeal here.

There is currently no way to appeal a decision by Twitter that permanently changes your account setting to Mark media you Tweet as containing material that may be sensitive in response to repeated mislabeling of sensitive content.
