How to turn off the read receipt, the tick, blue, Twitter


even Though it does not seem to be enabled for all Twitter accounts, the confirmation of reading or the tick blue (single, not double as in WhatsApp), it seems that has come to stay since Twitter remozara paragraph of messages to give it more aspect of a messaging application.

the idea is The same of always, instead of throwing messages in the air, and imagine if they have been read or not, a visual indication in the same chat as you said. From there, it’s up to you if you want to get in the film that someone is ignoring you deliberately or if it just wasn’t the best time to respond. Luckily, if you are not happy with the idea, you can turn off.

What is

The read receipt on messages from Twitter and shows you that the message has been displayed in the window of the other person. It does not necessarily mean that you have read, as may be the case that simply taps on the notification to stop is to be displayed but do not pay even the slightest attention to the content.

This is confirmation of reading is a classic in the messaging application, though it takes different shapes and shades. In WhatsApp is a double tick in blue on Telegram is a double tick, in LINE is a text that says “Read” and in Facebook Messenger, and Hangouts is the picture of another person up to where it has been read.


If you don’t want to send them, nor can you see them

Some applications allow you to turn off the read receipt, even though by a kind of poetic justice states that if you don’t want people to know that you’ve read all the messages, the you can’t see when you have read the you have sent. Seems fair, and it is also the case of Twitter.

To disable the read-receipt of messages on Twitter, you should use the side menu, enter in Settings and after go to the section Privacy and content. Here you will find the section to Send/receive read receipts, which you can disable at your leisure.


The new configuration takes effect immediately. The messages you read are displayed with a tick grey of sent, but not the blue of read. The other person may not really know if you have disabled the option, or if you have not read the message, to not be start to respond to you.
