Make your Twitter account private

  1. Open Twitter and click on theprofile icon located at the top right of your page, next to the Tweet button. From the drop-down menu, then select Settings and privacy.

  2. In the left column of this new page, click Confidentialité et sécurité.

  3. In the first section Privacy Policy, Check the box Protect your Tweets.

  4. Then go down to the bottom of the page to click on the button Save Changes.

From then on, you will receive a subscription request as soon as a new user wants to follow you, a request that you are of course free to accept or refuse. In addition, protected tweets cannot be RT, nor referenced in search engines like Google, thus ensuring your confidentiality even outside the Twitter sphere.
