On Twitter / X in 2023 I've started getting "purple star" notifications. I believe this is a notification for the "Moments" feature. They are basically algorithmic pushing of content from across the network; I do NOT want notifications for them.

Critically these add to the notifications badge number. This displays when you are using another account; causing you to constantly switch between accounts to clear these useless algorithmic advertising annoyances.

How can I disable notifications for these purple star tweets, but continue to receive notifications for the normal things on my account such as likes, DMs, and retweets?

if you click on the three dots in the top right you can choose 'see less often'. I'm unaware of another way to get rid of them
