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:

Twitter 2
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:

Select your option(s)

Next, tap Save on the Twitter app. Refer to the below image:

Settings > General > Language & Region

Next, toggle the Live Text switch to ON. Refer to the below image:

How to Remove Twitter Followers

If you do not like someone following you on Twitter but do not want to block them, you can remove them from your follower list. This only takes a few clicks.

RAYMOND OGLESBY @RaymondOglesby2
April 20, 2022

If you do not like someone following you on Twitter but do not want to block them, you can remove them from your follower list. This only takes a few clicks. Let’s explore how to do it on Twitter’s desktop and mobile site.

This is for the devices using Twitter

Dilbert and Spy

Note: As of the writing, the option to remove a follower is only available on Twitter’s desktop and mobile site. The option is not yet available on Twitter for Android or iOS.

The Old and New Methods

Twitter has launched the ability to remove followers at the end of 2021. Earlier, if you wanted to remove a follower, you had to block them. Doing so basically removed that user from your follower’s list, prevented them from following you again, and also hid your tweets from them.

In the new method of removing followers, you can remove someone from your follower’s list without blocking them. Twitter does not notify a user when you remove them from your follower’s list. However, they may notice they are not following you anymore, and they can then choose to follow you again. You will need to block them if you do not want them capable of following you, or choose the nuclear option and delete your Twitter account as a last resort.

Remove Followers Using Desktop

To delete a follower from your Twitter profile on a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use the Twitter desktop website.

First, open a web browser on your computer and launch the desktop Twitter site. Log in to your account if you have not already done so.

Next, in Twitter’s left sidebar, click the Profile option (the person icon). Refer to the below image:

Twitter 1
Selecting your Profile

Now, your profile page will open. Here, beneath your profile information, click the Followers link to see your followers list. See the below image:

Twitter 2
Selecting your Followers link

Next, on the follower’s page, find the follower you want to remove. Then, next to that user’s name, click the Menu icon (the three dots). See the following image:

Twitter 3
Selecting the Menu for a follower

Now, in the three-dots Menu, click Remove this follower. Refer to the below image:

Twitter 4
Selecting to Remove this follower

Next, you will see a Remove this follower prompt. Just click the Remove button. See the below image:

Warning: Make sure you really want to remove that follower before clicking “Remove.” Twitter will not show any further prompts and will immediately remove that user from your followers list.

Twitter 5
Remove the follower

Now, you are all set. Your selected follower is now removed from your Twitter followers list.

Remove Followers Using Mobile

If you are on an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, you can use Twitter’s mobile site to remove a follower from your account.

First, open a web browser on your phone and launch the mobile Twitter site (mobile.twitter.com/home). If you launch Twitter.com (as you do on the desktop), the removal process will not work. Sign in to your Twitter account if not already done so.

Next, in Twitter’s top left-hand corner, tap your Profile icon. See the following image:

Twitter 6
Selecting your Profile

Now, an Account info menu will open. Here, tap the Followers link. Refer to the below image:

Twitter 7
Selecting your Followers link

Next, on the follower’s page, find the follower you want to remove. Then, next to that user’s name, tap the Menu icon (the three dots). See the below image:

Twitter 8
Selecting the Menu for a follower

Now, in the three-dots Menu, tap Remove this follower. See the following image:

Twitter 9
Selecting to Remove this follower

Next, you will see a Remove this follower prompt. Just tap the Remove button. Refer to the below image:

Warning: Make sure you really want to remove that follower before clicking “Remove.” Twitter will not show any further prompts and will immediately remove that user from your followers list.

Twitter 10

Now, you are all set. Your selected follower is now removed from your Twitter followers list.

How to Save Google Chrome Passwords

Google Chrome can save your website passwords and help you automatically fill them the next time you visit your sites.

RAYMOND OGLESBY @RaymondOglesby2
April 13, 2022

Google Chrome can save your website passwords and help you automatically fill them the next time you visit your sites.

There are several ways to turn on the password saving feature in Chrome. Note that Chrome syncs your passwords with your Google account, which means if you enable Chrome to save passwords on one device, that change automatically applies to all your signed-in devices. Let’s explore this feature on both desktop and mobile devices.

This is for desktop and mobile running Chrome. Screenshots are from Windows 10 and iPhone XR

Save Passwords on Mobile

First, open Chrome on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.

Next, tap the three dots (the Menu icon) in Chrome on your device. If you are on Android, these dots are in Chrome’s top right-hand corner. If you are on an iPhone or iPad, you will find the Menu icon in the bottom right-hand corner. See the following image:

How to Use Safari Tab Groups on iPhone and iPad

Are you overwhelming yourself with the number of tabs you have open in Safari? Using the Tab Groups that arrived with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you can organize them so your browser stays orderly.

RAYMOND OGLESBY @RaymondOglesby2

Are you overwhelming yourself with the number of tabs you have open in Safari? Using the Tab Groups that arrived with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you can organize them so your browser stays orderly. Let’s explore how this is done.

This is for iPhone and iPad using Safari and running iOS15 or iPadOS 15 or higher

Similar to how tab groups work in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, you can group several tabs together and give them a label. This allows you to easily find and pull up your tabs again when you need them without cluttering up your view.

First, you will need to open a few tabs in Safari to use the Tabs Groups feature. After that, tap the Tabs button in the bottom left-hand corner. Refer to the below image:

Tab Groups 1
Accessing the Tabs button

Next, the tab count of open tabs will appear on the bottom bar. Tap on the tab count to open the Tab Groups menu. See the below image:

Tab Groups 2
Accessing the Tabs count

Now, in the Tab Groups menu, you will get two options. The New Empty Tab Group means you will get to make a tab group first and then add the tabs to it. If you want to create a group from your open tabs, you will need to choose the New Tab Group from X Tabs option. See the following image:

Tab Groups 3
Create a new tab group

Next, enter a name for your new tab group and hit the Save button. Refer to the below image:

Tab Groups 4
Label the new tab group

Now, Safari will switch you to a new tab group and show you the grid of open tabs. The name of the tab group will appear on the bottom bar. Tap Done to save the changes. See the below image:

Tab Groups 5
Save your change

Next, after creating a tab group in Safari, there are a few things you can do.

  • Tap the “+” (plus) button to add a new tab to a tab group. See the following image:
Tab Groups 6
Add a new tab
  • Hit the “x” cross sign in the top right-hand corner of the tab preview card to remove it from the group. Refer to the below image:
Tab Groups 7
Remove a tab
  • Tap on an open tab and drag it around to reorder it. Notice that the upper right-hand corner preview on the previous screen has been moved to the middle left. See the below image:
Tab Groups 8
Move your tabs

Now, hard-press on a tab, select Arrange Tabs By from the long-press menu and choose to Arrange Tabs By Title or Arrange Tabs By Websites. See the following image:

Tab Groups 9
Arrange your tabs

You can copy the links from the open tabs in a tab group to save them before closing all the tabs at once.
