About tailored suggestions

Tailor Twitter to your interests.

Tailored suggestions make building a great timeline — filled with Tweets, links, media, and conversations from the people you’re interested in — easier and faster. Twitter can make smarter and more relevant suggestions about who you might enjoy following.

How tailored suggestions work:

When you first sign up for Twitter, we might offer you a unique list of relevant suggestions about who to follow so that you can quickly experience the value and fun of Twitter. We determine the people you might enjoy following based on your visits to websites in the Twitter ecosystem (sites that have integrated Twitter buttons or widgets). We might suggest people who are frequently followed by other Twitter users that visit the same websites.

If you’re a current user, this feature offers dynamic suggestions about people you might enjoy following, keeping Twitter naturally aligned with your evolving interests. You can find some of these suggestions in the Who to follow section of your Home timeline, as well as the Notifications and Me pages of your account.

To protect your privacy, after a maximum of 10 days, we start the process of deleting or removing account identifiers from the data collected about your page visits, as explained in our privacy policy. For additional details, please see our frequently asked questions article.

It’s up to you.

We are committed to offering you meaningful privacy choices. If you don’t want tailored suggestions, there are several ways to turn off this feature:

  • For users signing up to Twitter on the web, you can uncheck the box that says Tailor Twitter based on my recent website visits.
  • After signup, you can uncheck this box in your Privacy and safety settings next to the heading Personalization.

  • Anyone can turn on the Do Not Track browser setting to turn off Tailored Suggestions. Learn more about Twitter’s support for the Do Not Track preference.
