Twitter problem

Snaps (Elite) posted this on Sunday, 8th September 2019, 09:21

I've just posted this up with little hope as Twitter never responds in my experience and I've not got many followers if you weed out the bots.
Fairly self explanatory.

Quote:
Help required.
Android #Twitter is now flooding my timeline with 'You might be interested in'
I've turned off notifications and alerts but it's still happening.
The equivalent of being told which paper to read and even which pages. #nothappy

Any advice?

I know how to do it on desktop...

  • The More... button
  • Settings and privacy
  • Notifications
  • Advanced filters
  • Check You don't follow

I've also read people use the Muted words when they are sick of Brexit and politics.

I didn’t understand how Twitter worked,
I asked for help there and all I got was weirdos . So I deleted it, so many odd
people or maybe I just t don’t want to be bother or I’m just getting old. Here is ok this is the only place I chat. Hope you will get help.

Tried that Rob and cleared cache.
Out of the first 7 tweets 1 promoted and 3 'You might be interested'

Muted 'You might be interested in' 
3 out of the first 4 headed by that phrase.

Any suggestion for a better Twitter app than Twitters own?
Tried Tweetcaster. Hate it.

EDIT: Update.
Trying Friendly for Twitter.
Initial impression favourable and it's removed those notifications.

'kin' Brexit Party get a promoted Tweet on my feed. Blocked faster than you can blink. There should be a law!

Possible as I don't have the problem on Chrome but it's more of a faff using a browser on my phone than an app.
Still liking Friendly on Twitter so I'll stick with that for the time being.

Seems to me I remember starting said thread.
I suspect it may well outlast me.
