Active Twitter users may occasionally see tweets with a Sensitive Content warning. If you have been very active on the site, you may see a ‘This Tweet may include sensitive content’ warning on certain tweets.

Have you ever wondered what does the warning message means and how to get rid of it and unlock the content? In this article, we will discuss Sensitive Content on Twitter and how to get rid of the warning message. Let’s get started.

Why the Sensitive Content Warning Appears on Tweets?

Over the years, Twitter has served as a great platform to show what’s happening worldwide. It gives you the freedom to share what’s on your mind.

While there are no restrictions on the content being shared, at times, the media you share on Twitter can depict sensitive topics, including violent and adult content.

You will see the warning message if your tweet contains a sensitive thing. Now you might be wondering how Twitter identifies sensitive content; according to Twitter, ‘Potentially sensitive content is the content that other users might not wish to see – such as nudity or violence’.

So, if Twitter finds any tweet sharing sensitive content, you will see the sensitive content warning. Similarly, Twitter also allows users to mark their accounts as sensitive.

If any profile is marked as sensitive, you will see the warning message, ‘This profile may include potentially sensitive content. You’re seeing this warning because they Tweet potentially sensitive images or language. Do you still want to view it?
