Today twitter introduces the new feature of mute button for its iPhone and android apps and its twitter website. The mute button in twitter will allow its users to mute the specific people from their timeline.
In its official blog, Twitter wrote, “Today we’re beginning to introduce a new account feature called mute to people who use our iPhone and Android apps and twitter.com. Mute gives you even more control over the content you see on Twitter by letting you remove a user’s content from key parts of your Twitter experience.” It continues, “To mute a user from a Tweet on your iOS or Android device or on Twitter for web tap more and then mute @username. To mute someone from their profile page, tap the gear icon on the page and choose mute @username.”
When you will mute any user from your twitter timeline then their tweets and re-tweets will no longer be visible in your timeline. Also you will not be able to receive messages or push notification from the person you have muted. The muted user will still be able to reply to your tweets, fave your tweets, re-tweets your tweets buy the factor is you won’t be able to see they have done it so. You can unmute the user anytime using your twitter account
The mute feature in twitter will be rolling out in coming days and users would be able to take advantage of it.
