The information available to you through Twitter will be only what that person has allowed to be shown on their profile, and it won't include their phone or email address (which Twitter likely used from your phone contacts to connect you two). You could run a web search on their Twitter handle and see what related sites come up -- folks will often reuse ...

I use the Stylebot plugin in Chrome to load some custom CSS for the Twitter site. .promoted-tweet { display: none; } That little bit of CSS will make all the promoted Tweets invisible.

If you don't like the promoted tweets then use an app instead. I use Tweetbot on iOS and Mac. It allows you to filter in many ways, including blocking promoted tweets. I block any number of things on Twitter and it makes the whole experience so much cleaner.

It's not a setting. It's what happens when you don't use them. If you didn't create any lists, Lists will not show. If you don't favourite/like/heart any tweets, that Likes tab will not show on your profile either.

Sara's retweet stays. Although Sue's notification says "Sara Retweeted your Retweet", on Sara's timeline you will see the retweet directly linked to the original Bob's tweet, not passing through Sue. Whatever Sue does will not affect this RT. I confirmed this experimentally. This tweet was retweeted by @NormalHumanSE and that retweet was retweeted by ...

Twitter generates an mp4 for an animated GIF, so you can upload it as a video to Facebook. e.g. via the API https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/show.json?id=479307198901026816 "variants": [ { "bitrate": 0, "content_type": "video/mp4", "url": "https://pbs.twimg.com/tweet_video/BqbXWaHIYAEciGo.mp4" } So ...

There is nothing wrong with Twitter reply, it is doing same what it has to do. I think you are confuse. When you click on reply arrow, it open a box (with the person's Twitter handle who has tweet) to write your reply. If someone has re-twetted it their handle also will be there in the box. To see the all the replies click on the tweet, not on reply arrow. ...

It is not clear what the cause of this problem. What you can do is logout from Facebook and twitter from all devices. Now login Facebook from laptop or desktop instead of Facebook app and try to link your Twitter account. Here is the direct link: https://www.facebook.com/twitter/ Clear your browser cache before login Facebook.

Go to this site: http://www.labnol.org/internet/twitter-auto-converts-links/20771/ and type your "URL resembling" text in the textbox. It will output the same text which does not create a hyperlink in a tweet. It can also be used to remove hyperlinks from @mentions and #hashtags More explanation is in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmq908lqCmk

The only practical way I've found is to munge the URL in some way. Enclosing in single-quotes, double-quotes, parentheses, brackets, braces, backticks, etc., has no effect. The classic way is to "escape" the dot character: asp[dot]net. Adding a couple of extra spaces around the dot would also do the trick: asp . net. If you can manage to insert a ...

There is no way of getting a definition of all possible hashtags ever made. Hashtags are a community-created way of organising information on Twitter. And because of their grassroots origin, they are still a very open, egalitarian tool: anyone can create (randomly make up with no real rules) and use any hashtag. There are new hashtags created all the time, ...
