I want my tweets on Twitter to remain private and not be visible to anyone except those I designate as being able to view.

How do I accomplish this?

  • I already mentioned this on a facebook thread, but it is worth mentioning again: If you are truly concerned about the privacy of twitter (or any social media) it would be prudent to communicate those messages in another format. Commented Jul 2, 2010 at 19:27

You need to check "Protect my tweets" on http://twitter.com/settings/account

Only let people whom I approve follow my tweets. If this is checked, your future tweets will not be available publicly. Tweets posted previously may still be publicly visible in some places.
