Thomas likes to encourage people, and on YouTube, he likes to press the “thumbs up” or like button whenever he sees something he likes.
But, recently he discovered that Youtube automatically tweets with his Twitter account whenever he likes a video on Youtube. It doesn’t really matter, but he doesn’t want to spam his Twitter followers and his own Twitter feed with a new tweet whenever he likes a video. That would be simply too much.
So, what can Thomas do to make YouTube stop tweeting whenever he likes a video on Youtube?
Stopping Youtube from tweeting about video likes
As Thomas looks on his Twitter feed, he can see a post like this.
Thomas doesn’t want Youtube to tweet about movies he likes anymore, and to fix it, this is what he does.
- He goes to the YouTube Settings.
- He selects Connected Apps.
- Under “Share your public activity on Twitter” he controls what content he wants to share to Youtube.
That was it. Thomas has fixed the problem, and from now (based on the settings on the image above), YouTube will only post to his Twitter account whenever Thomas uploads a new video.
Also, Thomas spends a few minutes to delete older tweets about movies he has liked. He doesn’t want them in his Twitter feed at all!
