Notes

  • What is a pinned tweet? A pinned tweet is a tweet that’s pinned. You’ll find the pinned tweet at the top of your profile. It’ll remain there until you unpin or remove it.
  • You can pin any of your tweets to get more attention for that.
  • Unpinning a tweet doesn’t remove it.
  • What happens when you unpin a tweet? If you unpin a tweet, that tweet will go back to its original position.
  • You can’t pin someone else’s tweet.
  • You can’t unpin someone else’s pinned tweet.
  • You can’t pin multiple tweets, and you can only pin one tweet. Note that if you’re pinning a tweet while there is an already pinned tweet, Twitter will replace the existing one.
  • You can’t edit a pinned tweet.
  • You can’t pin a retweet, but you can pin a retweet with a comment.

That’s it.
