How to Hide Following on Twitter

All the social media platforms that are famous today have their Unique Selling Points (USPs), which have helped them get there. Without them, it isn’t possible for any platform to get to the top today; there are too many platforms, and few of them match the rapidly changing consumer demands.

For example, Snapchat’s USP was its disappearing snaps and top-notch privacy. However, over the years, it has had to change its concept entirely to suit the needs of its users. Now, there’s also the option to replay the snaps, save them in chat, and even save them to your camera roll should the sender allow it. This constant upgradation and brilliant customer service have kept Snapchat afloat all these years.

When we talk about Unique Selling Points on social media platforms, the conversation isn’t finished before a well-deserved mention of Twitter. This short-form blog type is unlike anything seen online, which is why it gave Twitter the blast-off it needed.

However, it won’t be fair to blame the Elon Muck fiasco for being the spine of all of Twitter’s problems. According to a 2018 study that asked people which emotions they generally feel on different social media platforms, Twitter makes users feel “anxious, guilty and overwhelmed” (yikes).

Anyhow, the platform still has hundreds of millions of users. As long as you steer clear of all politics and news on the platform, you can still enjoy it. Of course, that’ll kind of defeat the whole point of the platform.

Now, only your followers can see who you’re following.

If you still want to hide who you’re following, the best alternative is not to follow them. Just go to their profile every few days to catch up on the content they’ve been posting.

In the end

As we end this blog, let us recap all that we’ve talked about today.

There’s no option on Twitter that allows you to hide who you’re following on Twitter. The best alternative is to hide your following from random users by turning your account private. This means that only your followers will be able to see your following, but a private account comes with its own restrictions; your reach will be limited to your followers only.
