A tutorial on Twitter privacy including protected Twitter profiles, tweets and reasons as to why you would want to have either a protected or private Twitter profile.

The above Twitter video tutorial will cover how protect your tweets on Twitter, configure Twitter’s privacy settings as well as reasons as to why you would or would not want to have a protected Twitter profile.

Privacy on Twitter is generally one of the first topics that new Twitter users ask about. The truth is, in order to get the most out of Twitter, users should keep their profiles unprotected. There are really only two forms of profile visibility on Twitter – completely public (everyone can see) or completely protected (those you approve can see all of your tweets).

There may be certain instances where you would want to have a protected Twitter profile – mainly if you have a large group of friends or family members that are using Twitter to tweet about their personal life.
