Twitter keeps on showing me "Live video" on the right column, usually with some sports or esports.

Right now I keep seeing "Wimbledon live". Even when I click on "Hide", on reload, I see it again.

I have never shown interest in tennis or Wimbledon, and I have no idea how it's related to Twitter at all.

How do I turn it off? I have searched Twitter documentation and settings, and I don't see anything about these live videos.

Click on Profile & Settings (top right avatar image) then Settings and privacy. In the section Content there is a checkbox labeled Video Tweets: Video autoplay. Uncheck it, Save and voila, Live videos are gone.
