This tweet might include sensitive content: Explained

Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. Due to its popularity, it’s also one of the most controversial. It isn’t rare to stumble across a rather popular tweet with some NSFW content or controversial opinion.

To protect its users and stop the spread of misinformation, Twitter has started showing several labels on such tweets indicating to users that this tweet might have content that’s not exactly correct or some sensitive content that can set off some users. 

In this article, we’re looking at the “this tweet might include sensitive content” message you might see on some tweets. We’ll also be talking about how you can disable the warning.

Sensitive tweets explained

Most tweets that show the sensitive media label do so because they’ve been marked as containing sensitive material by the tweet’s author. Failure to do so can cause your Twitter account to be suspended. 

According to Twitter, “You may not post media that is excessively gory or share violent or adult content within a live video, in profile header, or List banner images. Media depicting sexual violence and assault is also not permitted.”
