How to Turn Off Video Autoplay in Twitter

Whenever I am on my MacBook Pro, I use the Twitter website to look at my Twitter feed (as opposed to using Tweetbot on my mobile devices). I found it to be pretty annoying that videos automatically started to play. So I turned off this feature. It’s very easy to do.

STEP 1:  Click on your profile picture next to the search box.

STEP 2:  Scroll down to Video Tweets in the “Content” section. The “Video autoplay” box is checked if the feature is turned on.

STEP 3:  Click on the box to turn if off.

STEP 4:  Click on the Save Changes button.

To me, it is well worth the minimal effort needed to turn off the annoying autoplay feature.
