Here’s How To Manage Your @MagicRecs Recommendations

You Can Now Manage Your @MagicRecs Recommendations

To help keep users ever more in-the-know, Twitter recently rolled out mobile notifications that provide personalized recommendations for accounts to follow and tweets to check out. The new builds on super-popular Twitter account @MagicRecs, which started as an experimental project and has now reached full-fledged cult status by sending instant, personalized recommendations for users via DM.

Now, reports Mashable, thanks to @MagicRecs’ runaway success, users can manage the recommendations Twitter sends their way.


To start receiving recommendations, all you have to do is follow the @MagicRecs account. If you want to stop receiving recommendations, just unfollow.

New interactions with @MagicRecs via DM include:

- “Hi”, “hello”, or “hey” will prompt @MagicRecs to respond with a greeting.

- “Help” will return a DM list of available actions.

- “Tweets on/off” will turn on or off recommendations for specific tweets the bot thinks you may find interesting.

- “Users on/off” will enable or disable @MagicRecs from sending you recommendations of users it thinks you will enjoy following.

- “Good” tells @MagicRecs that you like the recommendations it’s sending.

- “Bad” tells @MagicRecs that you do not enjoy your personalized recommendations.

Note that the interactions only work via DM, not tweet.
