How to Stop Twitter Emails on a Computer or Mobile Device

If you want to stop these emails and find your own way through the Twitterverse, you can disable Twitter emails with a few easy clicks or taps.

How to Stop Twitter Emails on Your Computer

1. Log in to Twitter and go to your homepage. Click on your profile picture.

2. Click More at the bottom of the left menu. Do not click on Notifications in this first menu – it will take you to Twitter notifications but will not allow you to disable email notifications.

3. Choose Settings and Privacy from the menu that appears.

4. Click Notifications. A Notifications menu appears on the right.

seven. If you want to take a more nuanced approach, leave email notifications turned on and check the boxes below to be more selective about which emails you receive and how often they arrive.

8. Note that if you have multiple Twitter accounts, you will need to repeat this for each profile to get rid of all Twitter emails.

You can also adjust your SMS notifications under Notifications > Preferences.

Another way to stop Twitter emails is to click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of an email from Twitter. But this will only unsubscribe you from Top Tweets and Stories emails, not all Twitter notifications.
