Dirty Dogs. Read this Tweet!

H/T WeeWeed

I found loads of things on mine, including Christian, Politics, Donald Trump, Trump Followers, Mike Pence, Conservatives, etc etc.

The steps to follow, per the tweet (it works):

  1. Select Profile and settings (same place you log out).
  2. From that menu, click on Settings and privacy.
  3. From the menu on the left side of the screen, click on Your Twitter data. You may need to enter your password to continue.
  4. Page down to the section labeled Your Twitter interests, or Interests and ads data.
  5. There may be several entries. Right now, I have two categories to check, Inferred interests from Twitter and Inferred interests from partners. Yours may just be Your Twitter interests. In any case, click on the See all link.
  6. Uncheck all of the items that seem suspect.

Be sure to thank WeeWeed for the tip!

    One less item in life for me to be concerned about personally…I quit the whole Twitter moneymaker for Dorsey. Why give someone that hates me without knowing me, despises what I believe and who I support a single dime?

    I do, however, read https://threadreaderapp.com and don’t know what financial arrangement, if any, that proprietor has with Twitter. So, perhaps, I’m still giving that hater-leftist a monetary gain.

    However, if it is something meaningful to others, then go for it, and try to keep Jack as honest as possible by controlling your settings. I’ve read that some have to do that daily.

      Ms. Lucille, I’m not sure what financial arrangement threadreader has with twitter. I too am a subscriber……but the last time I got put in twit-mo, I realized that I was still getting my threadreaderapps.

      So, when I got out of twit-mo with a little help from a friend on gab.ai , first thing I did was go subscribe via threadreader to every twatter researcher that I ever even look at!

      Also, either second or third time I was in twit-mo, I reached out to threadreader (His name is Jerome) and asked him to get in with gab too. He responded that he would try (but a lot of computer-speak) I need to hit him up, and Andrew Torba who runs gab.
