    Find the Twitter application, and tap on it once to open the application. The Twitter application has a blue background with a white bird on it, with the word "Twitter" underneath it. Your Twitter application may be in a different position in this folder, therefore you will need to find it.

  9. 9
    Now we want to scroll down and tap on the box next to "Crisis and emergency alerts; Twitter alerts are critical Tweets from trusted organizations you follow". This could be governments or news agencies warning us about a disaster or fire, terrorist or war indecent etc., and it is very useful to have this turned on. In this example, we can see the option is currently turned on because the box to the right is blue with a white check mark inside of it. If we tap on the box to disable the option, the box will be empty to indicate the option is deactivated and that we won't see any crisis alerts.
