How to force Twitter.app to use Safari Reader Mode in iOS

Twitter has launched a new iOS design, and while it’s not the best Twitter app for iOS, it’s probably the most popular among all of Twitter’s users.

I use Twitter to follow a lot of news, so I loved finding this gem in the settings menu. You can now force links to open in Safari Reader Mode. If you’ve never used Safari Reader Mode, you are missing out. A lot of websites are full of full-page ads, pop ups, and other garbage that makes for an unpleasant reading experience. Safari Reader Mode attempts to bring the text forward in a clear window without any sidebar distractions. Enabling this on Twitter makes every day news gathering a better experience.

  1. To activate it, tap your profile icon in the top left, and tap Settings and privacy.
    Twitter settings
  2. Then, tap Accessibility under the General section.
    Twitter settings
  3. In the Web browser section, enable Open links in Reader View.
    Twitter settings
  4. Tap the back button, and you are finished. Now links will be much easier to read going forward.
