Twitter, like Facebook, Instagram and most other social media platforms, can fill your inbox with emails, in an effort to get you excited about what's happening and draw you back into your Twitter feed.

If you want to stop these emails and find your own way through the Twitterverse, you can turn off Twitter emails in a few easy clicks or taps.

How to stop Twitter emails on your computer

1. Log on to Twitter and go to your homepage. Click on your profile picture.

2. Click on More at the bottom of the menu on the left. Don't click on Notifications in this first menu - that will take you to notifications from Twitter but won't let you turn off email notifications.

3. Choose Settings and privacy from the menu that pops up.

4. Click Notifications. A Notifications menu appears on the right.

5. Under Preferences, click Email notifications. The screen that pops up gives you a detailed menu of options.

6. To turn off all Email notifications, slide the blue dot at the top to the left. All the options below will gray out and you won't receive any Twitter emails.

7. If you want to take a more nuanced approach, leave Email notifications on and check the boxes below to be more selective about what emails you get and how often they arrive.

8. Note that, if you have more than one Twitter account, you'll need to repeat this for each profile to get rid of all Twitter emails.

You can also regulate your SMS notifications under Notifications > Preferences.

Another way to stop Twitter emails is to hit the Unsubscribe button at the bottom of an email from Twitter. But this will only unsubscribe you from emails of Top Tweets and Stories, not all Twitter notifications.
