Safari version Frequently Asked Questions

macOS / iOS

I just downloaded Control Panel for Twitter from the App Store, why is it not working?

Safari browser extensions require you to manually enable settings to allow them to run. After installing from the App Store, you need to:

  1. Enable the extension – the Control Panel for Twitter app which opens after installation has a button which will take you to the appropriate page in Settings. Use it to toggle the extension on.
  2. Give the extension permission to run on Twitter – change the website access permissions for and to "Allow".

I opened Twitter using a bookmark I added to my Home Screen - why is Control Panel for Twitter not working?

You can use the Shortcuts app to create your own shortcut to open Twitter in Safari. For an example, watch this video of setting up a Twitter shortcut on iPhone.


How can I make this banner go away?
