How to Pin and Unpin a Tweet on Twitter

A pinned tweet is a tweet which is pinned.

You can pin any of your tweet for which you want to get more attention. Also, note that if you wish, you can pin a retweet with comment. However, remember that you can’t pin a retweet.

When you pin a tweet, it’ll stay on top of your profile until you unpin or remove it.

Keep in mind that you can pin only one tweet. Also, note that if you are pinning a tweet while there is an already pinned tweet, then the existing one will be replaced.

With all that said, let’s see how to pin a tweet on Twitter.
