How to Stop Twitter Suggestions



Twitter, like other social media networks, tries to personalize your timeline/feed. It’s a normal behavior for social media networks and it works, for the most time. Sometimes you get recommendations that aren’t relevant to you in any way and it can get pretty annoying.

Fortunately, you can tweak some settings to get a better experience or you can turn the suggestions off completely with a third-party app or extension in this case. At any rate, here’s how to stop twitter suggestions completely.
