How to disable Twitter’s new Highlights feature notification on Android

Twitter introduced a new feature called Highlights, that’s intended to help you stay informed on the most important tweets and conversations among your followers. In reality is really not very good. it’s another pointless distraction and imo it needs turning off.

Thankfully it’s quite simple to do.

  • Select the settings menu
  • Tap on your account name, if you have multiple, you’ll need to do this for each
  • Tap on mobile notifications
  • Scroll down the list of settings until you each Highlights, uncheck the checkbox to disable.

That’s it you’ll no longer get the Highlights notifications.

  1. Sorry if it’s not working, I’m guessing that’s a bug in the twitter app. If the option to display Highlights is disabled i’d expect it to be disabled.

    I don’t receive Highlights at all, I’m using Version 5.99.0 on android 6.0.1

  2. Thanks, I didn’t realize it was Twitter annoying me. I’ve uninstalled Twitter, and my phone is much better now
