How to Keep iTunes 10.1 from Tweeting Your Ping Activity

If you’re not a fan of iTunes Ping and don’t want iTunes to tweet all of your Ping activities to all of your followers, you may want to disable this feature. I sure don’t mind linking Twitter to Ping, but what I don’t like is the auto-tweeting of my Ping activity, so if you are in the same boat as I am and would like to keep iTunes from tweeting your Ping activity, follow the instructions below. I also show you how to unlink/disconnect your Twitter account from Ping (Step A). If you have any comments or questions please use the comments form at the end of the article.
