Twitter is a great platform to express your opinions and emotions, but at times some people make it their sole method of doing so. As such, the huge number of Tweets from these accounts take control of your timeline. What’s worse, you can’t unfollow them, since you don’t wish to be rude.
Fret not, for Twitter has started rolling out the mute feature. Muting someone on Twitter makes sure that you do not get their Tweet or Retweets on your timeline, or receive SMS notifications, without them ever knowing about it. Of course, if you have a change of heart in the future, you can simply unmute them.
The feature is now rolling out to the Android and iOS versions of the official app, although, it’s been available on third party apps for quite a while now. Web users will also be able to access the future, while Windows Phone users are expected to get it in the near future.
