Today Twitter is introducing a new feature that allows you to silence people that you follow, and are not sure you want to unfollow. The new feature, “mute,” gives you more control over the content you see on Twitter. Now you have an opportunity to remove a user's activity or a topic you don't care much about. This can be very convenient when you just want to mute a friend who does spoiler alerts for your favourite shows all the time.
The feature is similar to the “turn on” button for notifications when you don't want to miss a comment from your favourite Twitter user.
As Twitter wrote, “Muting a user on Twitter means their Tweets and Retweets will no longer be visible in your home timeline, and you will no longer receive push or SMS notifications from that user.” The user whom you put on mute on will still be able to fave, reply and retweet your tweets, you just won't see that activity on your timeline, and the person won't be aware that you've muted him. This is really a handy bonus. When you change your mind you can always unmute it.
There are various ways you can mute someone depending on whether you are an iOS or Android user.
If you want to mute a Twitter user on iOS, you need to Tap a Tweet from the user you'd like to mute, then tap the ••• icon, tap mute and Yes, I'm sure to confirm. If you want to mute an Android user, first tap the ••• icon, then tap Mute @username and confirm. When you mute someone a red mute icon will appear on the user’s profile. At the moment you change your mind, all you have to do is press the red mute icon to unmute.
According to Paul Rosania, Twitter product manager, this feature will be available in the next few weeks.
