Restrict interest-based ads
If you do not want Twitter to show you interest-based ads on and off Twitter, there are a few ways to turn off this feature:
- Using your Twitter settings, visit the Personalisation and data settings and adjust the setting Personalise ads.
- If you are on the web, you can visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s consumer choice tool at aboutads.info to opt-out of seeing interest-based advertising from Twitter in your current browser.
Opting out of Twitter’s interest-based ads won’t stop you from seeing Twitter ads altogether. You may still see ads on Twitter that are personalised based on other information from your activity on Twitter.
