How To Limit Replies To Your Tweets

Twitter is experimenting with a new feature that lets you limit to reply to tweets according to your wish. The whole idea is that when you start writing a new tweet, you will able to choose who will be actually able to reply to it. Obviously the default option would be Everyone can reply next to the globe icon in the new tweet compose box.

Tapping on this option will enable you to make the changes related to who can actually reply to your tweet. These are the options you will see when you change

Twitter reply settings
  • Everyone: As I said earlier, this is the default option and that is unique only to public accounts. It generally means anybody can reply to your tweets. But in case if your Tweets are protected, it means only people who follow you will be able to reply to your tweets.
  • People you follow: As the name suggests, only people whom you follow, as well as anyone you mention in the Tweet, will be able to reply.
  • Only people you mention: This is the safest option if you don't want generally opinion on the tweet. Only and only if you mention in the tweet, those people will be able to reply to your tweets.

A couple of things you need to keep in mind about this whole thing are

  • When your Tweet is pushed to the public and is available for everyone to see, people will be able to see that that you have limited who can reply to your Tweet.
  • Restrictions you place on your Tweets like who can reply will only be not able to reply to your tweet. they can still favorite the tweet, share, repost and all that jazz.
  • Once published, the restrictions cannot be modified. The only way out is to actually delete the tweet. Retweets and replies will inherit the restrictions that you placed on the parent tweet.
  • This is a cool one. Deactivating will lift all the restrictions that you applied on all the tweets, and if you reactivate your account during the reactivation window, the restrictions on all the tweets will be reapplied.
