How to Disable Read Receipts for Twitter Messages

Sharing is caring!

Twitter read receipts

We have talked about read receipts a couple of times earlier. It’s a common feature in all modern messaging platforms that inform the senders when their message has read by the recipient. Like Facebook Messenger, Twitter also tracks your message opens and records its exact time near to the thread you viewed.

Do you want to turn off read receipts in Twitter messages?  If you turn off this setting in WhatsApp, you will not be able to see receipts from other people also. This rule is applicable in Twitter too.

This’s exactly what should you do to disable the read receipts in Twitter.

Sign into Twitter and open settings.

Locate Privacy and Safety section. Under Privacy, you will see direct message related settings.

Uncheck Send/Receive read receipts option. Save the changes made. Twitter won’t notify others when you have seen their message, thereafter.
