If you need to tweet an image or video of something with a content warning, it’s a good idea to mark the media as “sensitive.” Doing so will hide the image or video unless someone clicks the Show button. Here’s how to do this.

First, visit the Twitter website or open the Twitter app. Begin composing a tweet and attach an image or a video. For this post, we are using an image in reverse color. Your video or image should display normally.

If you are using the Twitter app, tap the Paintbrush icon below the image thumbnail to begin editing. If you are on the web version of Twitter, click Edit in the lower right-hand corner of the image. Refer to the below image:

Edit the image

Next, tap or click the Flag icon. On the Twitter app, it’s in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. On the web, you will find the Flag as a tab in the upper right-hand corner, just above the image thumbnail. See the below image:

Select the Flag icon

Now, under the Put a content warning on this tweet menu, place a checkmark beside any of the items that apply. If you are posting a spoiler on Twitter, the Sensitive setting works the best. Once finished, tap Done then Save on the Twitter app, or just Save on the web version of Twitter. See the following image:

Pretty easy, Just make sure that you do not violate Twitter’s terms of service along the way.
