Want No NSFW Media Tweets? Turn Off Sensitive Content On Twitter

While scrolling through Tweets, you may have come across an error message that said, “This Tweet may contain sensitive content,” and wondered what it meant on Twitter. So, here is your response.
The majority of social media platforms have strict policies prohibiting the posting of NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content. Instagram users, for example, may face suspensions, bans, or even account deactivation if they post sensitive content on their respective handles. However, unlike many other platforms, Twitter allows users to post NSFW content. The only requirement is that when posting NSFW content, you mark it as sensitive in the privacy and safety settings. That is why you must understand how to enable and disable sensitive content on Twitter.
This blog post will explain why you are receiving the sensitive content error message, as well as a detailed procedure for resolving the issue by turning off sensitive content on Twitter. So let’s get started.


Why “this Tweet might include sensitive content” error occurs?

When someone posts NSFW content on Twitter, the person must first mark the media as sensitive content. Otherwise, there is a clear risk of the account being suspended.
In general, Twitter says, “This Tweet may contain sensitive content,” implying that the containing material (photo, video, or text) of the Tweet may not be suitable for viewing. In the privacy and security settings, the user has marked it as sensitive.

Fixing “This Tweet might include sensitive content”:

As previously stated, before sharing NSFW content on Twitter, users must mark it as sensitive content. This can be accomplished by accessing the safety setting in your Twitter account’s privacy and safety settings. Navigate to Settings and Privacy and follow the steps as follows:
Settings and privacy > Privacy and security > Security Mark any media that you tweet as potentially sensitive.
The user who has marked their tweets as sensitive is more likely to regularly post NSFW content. And the “This Tweet may contain sensitive content” error message is intended to keep you away from posts that you don’t want to see. You can change that setting by turning sensitive content on or off in your privacy and safety settings.
