Even though I use social networking and messaging apps a lot, Twitter remains my first choice for a few prime reasons. Whenever I have to check out the latest happenings quickly or wish to tweet something, the micro-blogging app becomes the go-to option for me.

One of my favorite features in Twitter is “Direct Message” along with the newly added “Night Mode“. DM allows you to send message to your followers. Whether you want to send awesome GIFs, funny emojis, photos or videos, DM can let you do so.

How to Turn Off Read Receipt in Twitter on iPhone and iPad

The micro-blogging app has been updated to add Read Receipts. When anyone sends you a message, he/she will know when you have seen the message. What if you don't like this feature for any personal reason? You can turn it off to prevent others from finding out when you have read the message.

How to Enable/Disable Read Receipts in Twitter on iPhone/iPad

  • By default, Read Receipts is turned on.
  • A tick mark appears next to the sent message when it's read.
  • When it's disabled, you will not be able to see read receipts from other people as well.

Step #1. Launch Twitter on your iOS device → Tap on Me tab at the bottom right corner → Now, tap on a Gear icon next to your profile picture.

That's it! Now, no one will know when you have read their message. If you ever want to enable it, simply follow all the steps mentioned above and turn on the switch in the end.

The stock Messages app on iPhone and WhatsApp have got Read Receipts feature for long. The Messages was the first to get it. I still remember how annoyed a lot of iPhone users were as there was no option to turn off Read Receipts initially. Fortunately, iOS 10 allows you to enable/disable individual Read Receipts.
