How to block Twitter from a child’s phone

Are you a Mobile Guardian Parent? Do you want to block Twitter on your child’s phone to stop them tweeting up a storm, or seeing inappropriate updates? If so, then you are in the right place. Please note that this feature is device-specific and in the case of iOS devices, will only work on supervised iOS devices. If you would like to set your iOS device to supervised mode, please follow this guide.
