Block Unwanted Calls from Twitter (X) by Tweaking These Settings

Twitter’s audio and video calling features can be great ways to connect, but they may also open the door to unwanted calls. Whether it’s spam, harassment, or simply calls at inconvenient times, the ability to manage who contacts you through Twitter is important.

Thankfully, Twitter provides settings that offer control over incoming calls. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of blocking unwanted calls on Twitter.

Understanding Twitter’s Call Settings

Twitter’s call settings allow you to customize your experience and protect yourself from unwanted contact. Here are the key options:

  • Block all Incoming Calls: This simple option completely disables audio and video calling on your Twitter account.
  • Restrict Calls to Specific Users: If you wish to maintain calling functionality but with more control, you can limit incoming calls to the following:
    • People you follow: Only those you follow on Twitter can call you.
    • People you follow and who follow you: Limits calls to mutual followers.
