Set your Twitter Account to Private in a few easy Steps
When you create an online account, no matter the platform, it will be set by default as public. A public profile can be seen by everyone, and this could be a threat to your privacy because you’re giving strangers on the Web a nice view of your name, photos, friends, and the school\workplace you go to. So, if you don’t want to flaunt your personal info online and the stuff you post, you can do so by setting your account to private. In Twitter‘s case, for instance, your posts – i.e. Tweets – and other account information are only visible to your confirmed Followers when you make your profile private.
Let’s find out how you can change your Twitter account from public to private, to keep your personal data and posts safe and away from prying eyes.
