Twitter is known as one of the more popular social networking sites currently available. Unfortunately, Twitter also has quite a list of email messages (notifications for DMs, likes, retweets, etc.) they end up sending you to overload your Gmail inbox. By default, most or all of the options are automatically set to go ahead and send the emails. This has proven itself to be very quick at being very annoying to most users. Most users don’t want to sit around having to uncheck everything they don’t want. That list is not always a short one.
- Install Block Sender for Gmail by clicking the “Install” button found in the upper right-hand corner of this site. The installation won’t take long. Open Gmail when it is done.
- After signing up for a Block Sender account and linking your Gmail account to Block Sender, open the unwanted email from Twitter, and click the "Block" button on the messages toolbar.
- Select the "Emails from this sender" option.
Once this is done, you will no longer receive emails from that Twitter email account. If you ever decide you want to start receiving their emails again you can simply unblock the email.
Also note that Twitter may send emails from multiple email accounts, so you can block each one you receive, or you can simply block their entire domain.
