Twitter can be a cesspool full of bots, trolls, and Reply Guys. Luckily, there are some built-in privacy and security tools you can use to minimise the amount of garbage in your feed. In the video above, I show you how.

Unfollow

The most obvious first step to cleaning up your Twitter feed is to Marie Kondo the accounts you follow. Don’t want to see your ex from college fall down the alt-right rabbit hole in real time? Unfollow. Sick of your former roommate posting constantly about how she just loves living alone with her cat? Unfollow. Just keep in mind that this doesn’t stop them from following you or messaging you if your DMs are open.
