Twitter Security and Privacy Settings You Need to Know

A security tutorial demonstrating how to enable important security and privacy settings on Twitter.

To kick off the new year, we are restarting our tutorial screencast series where we attempt to briefly walk users through the process of locking down their various online accounts. Today’s video, which is just slightly longer than we had hoped, thoroughly details the steps necessary to ensure that your Twitter account is as private and secure as possible.

We apologize for the left-right confusion at 1:05. The gear icon is very clearly in the top right, not the top left. Also, there are two things we failed to mention.

  1. Be careful when opening shortened links in tweets and direct messages because it is hard to be certain about where they lead.
  2. If you are interested in privacy, then it is probably not a good idea to link your Twitter account with your Facebook account.

As always, drop any of your own suggestions in the comments section below.
