Twitter introduced a new feature that lets you silence annoying Twitter users. The new feature, which is appropriately named “mute”, is the opposite of the notifications feature.

You can set it up so you will be notified when your favorite users post a tweet. And now, thanks to the new mute feature, you can silence the users you don’t really care about. Hear more from some, hear nothing from others!

Twitter has a treat for iPhone, Android, and online users: a new feature called “mute.” Thanks to this new feature, which started rolling out at the start of the week, you can silence Twitter users – annoying Twitter users, Twitter users you don’t really care about, or Twitter users that have a severe case of “verbal diarrhea.”

If you mute a user, that user’s activity will not be presented on your timeline anymore. After you mute a user, that user’s tweets and retweets will not be displayed on your timeline; push and text notifications for that user will no longer be sent out.

Users that have been muted will not know about it. You can mute them and they won’t know a thing. Muted users will still be able to reply, retweet, and favorite your tweets.

Twitter’s New Mute Feature
  • A muted user’s tweets and retweets will not be presented on your timeline.
  • Push and SMS notifications will not be sent out for muted users.
  • Muted users do not know they have been muted.
  • Muted users can reply, retweet, and favorite your tweets.

A few weeks ago, Twitter rolled out a new web profile experience. It lets you pin tweets to the top of your profile, use a photo as your profile header, filter tweets, and it enlarges tweets with more engagement. Additional information on this topic is available here.
