We seem to be more in hurry and then our mailbox is overloaded with emails. Sometimes there are so many mails we can get them all done. Then we even didn’t mention the amount of notification from our used Social platforms which appear in our mailbox. Although we are very busy we will watch them, we want to know what they are saying to us. Is there no other way. Yes, there is. Some explanation how you can solve this problem within Twitter.
Many start with a Social platform like Twitter of Instagram and leave the settings as they are. After a while irritation starts to get in. It mostly has to do with amount of notification they get in their mailbox.
I always advice to give 15 minutes of your time (maximum) to the settings of the platform. Sometimes you will have to search a little and think about what they really mean but it can save you from some irritation.
At mostly all platform there is a possibility the change the notifications settings. With these settings you can prevent a full mailbox with notifications. If you are not really aware you can get up until 20 emails extra. You don’t want that. And it is also not efficient when you are daily active on the platform.
Within Twitter it will look like this when you search within the settings:
Here some tip and remarks about de settings
You don’t want to have any emails? Just click on the top button and you will turn them off. Very simple and effective. When you are daily active on the platform it will be a very good option.
When you have just started I always advice to leave them as they are. When you get the grip on it and know what is happening you can change the settings. You can be more critical on the amount of mails. But in the beginning leave them as they are you will know what is happening.
After a short time you’ll get the grip and then it is time to change. Go to the notification settings and change them. Here are some advices from me.
-turn it off when your tweets are retweeted. You see it anyway on the platform
-turn it off when you got a reply. When you are active you will know it anyway
- turn it off who is following you
- turn it off when you receive private messages
When you do this it will become much more relaxing in the mailbox with notifications from Twitter. It is recommendable to change it when you are active. Through your visits you will see what is happening and you don’t need the notifications.
With some simple settings we can empty your mailbox. Please always check the setting at a social platform. It can prevent some irritation.
Met enige simpele veranderingen in de instellingen kunnen we de mailbox al weer wat leger krijgen. Kijk als je begint op een sociaal platform altijd even naar de instellingen en zorg er voor dat ze je geen ergernis geven.
