How to pin or unpin a tweet on Twitter?

Twitter is a fast-paced social media platform with thousands of short tweets being sent out every second. If you’re relatively active on Twitter, chances are that you tweet multiple times a day and that could result in some important piece of information shared in a tweet being shoved to the bottom of your profile.

If you want to highlight a tweet of your own at the top of your profile, Twitter offers the pinning feature, that pins a tweet at the top of your profile page — like a sticky post — until you unpin. Any new tweets you send out will appear below the pinned tweet on your profile page.

You can only pin one tweet on your profile at a time, so if you already have a tweet pinned to your profile, pinning another tweet will replace the first one.

In this article, we’re going to discuss how you can pin your tweet on Twitter for PC, Android and iOS and also how to unpin them in a jiffy.
