Twitter is a great platform to connect with news outlets, brands, celebrities, and get instant updates on what is currently trending. These qualities have made the micro-blogging site quite popular, especially if you are looking for a summarized version of news or update (thank for the character limits). However, these days it is swamped with promoted tweets.
While we understand that it is the advertisements that keeps lights lit at Twitter, and put food on the table for its staffers. It is nonetheless unpleasant to see so many promoted tweets on your News Feed. And in this article, we are going to share with you a tweak that will remove promoted tweets from your News Feed.
Get yourself a jailbroken device
For this tweak to work, you need to be using a jailbroken device. That means it is only applicable to iOS devices users. Armed with your jailbroken device, launch the Cydia Store and refresh your sources. You should be able to see the new jailbreak tweak that goes by the name NoTwitterAds developed by Chloee.
The essence of being on Twitter is to follow people, brands, and events among other things that you care about. And seeing Promoted Tweets undermines that concept, as they can sometimes be the complete opposite of what you believe in; especially when you see political ads.
NoTwitterAds does not give you the option of configuring how the News Feed flows, and by some few taps you will have set it up on your phone. After installing it, you should not be seeing any more of those promoted Tweets in your News Feed.
But that will last for as long as you have the NoTwitterAds installed on your device. Should you uninstall it or switch devices, you will continue to see the promoted Tweets on your Twitter account. The same goes when you use the computer browser to go on Twitter.
Download the NoTwitterAds from the Cydia’s Packix repository for free at this link. The tweak only works for iOS 10 and 11 devices.
