How To Access Drafts In Twitter For iOS

If you use Twitter for iOS on either your iPhone or iPad, you’ve probably had a time where you had a Tweet fail and tell you it has been saved to your Drafts. Whether that reason was spotty service or something else, you will need to try and resend it at a later time. Drafts also doubles as a nice place to jot down thoughts for a later time if you don’t have time to interact with followers right that second.

Instead of hopping through several menus, here’s how to access the drafts section of Twitter for iPhone and iPad in only one tap:

  • Launch the Twitter app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  • Tap and Hold on the Compose button in the upper right hand corner of the main Timeline view.
  • Drafts will now pop up and you can tap on the Draft you’d like to finish or try to re-send.

That’s all there is to it!

How To Block Individual iMessage Contacts In OS X Mavericks

In order to block someone on your Mac, open the Messages app -> click on Messages in the menu bar -> Settings -> click on the Accounts tab -> find the “blocked” tab and click on the small ‘+‘ icon to select the contact you want to block.

Note that both, their phone number and email address, will be added to that blocked list if you have both kinds of information stored in you contacts. In order to delete either or both, simply select it and click on the ‘‘ button.

No receipt will be sent. A blocked user won’t actually know that you’ve blocked or unblocked them.

If someone keeps bugging you, but you don’t actually want to block them; you can also turn off notifications or schedule a specific time for turning off notifications with the built-in Do Not Disturb feature of OS X Mavericks.
