Twitter Announces A More Polite Way to Block with Mute Feature


Sick of annoying tweets but feel obligated to follow them? Twitter now has a solution that is as easy as pressing a mute button.

Twitter has just released a new Mute feature that allows users to control the tweets and updates they receive on their primary feed.

When a user is muted, their activity will no longer appear on your main feed but the user will still be able to respond and re-tweet your tweets; none the wiser than you “muted” them.

According to Twitter, “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.”

The mute function is one step down from Twitter’s block function, which means that the user is┬áprevented from both viewing and responding to tweets.

Twitter plans to roll out the new mute feature in the coming weeks.
