Twitter has updated their system and included an option of mute button, this feature was spotted couple of times back on android app, iOS app and now on twitter too. But now, the company has officially announced the mute button.
It is proved, a great help to prevent your news feeds from bulging up with irrelevant notification. Mute button also works well to get rid-off from irritating and boring tweets temporally, instead of blocking them completely.
Mute Button Added By Twitter
Twitter product manager, Paul Rosania, said in a blog post on the company’s website “The muted user will still be able to see, reply, and retweet your Tweets; you just won’t see any of that activity in your timeline, The muted user will not know that you’ve muted them, and of course you can unmute at any time.”
This feature is more practical and useful when a person you’re following begins to stuff your newsfeeds with topics; you don’t have interest in, and started to engage you in topics you don’t want to participate in.
So it’s time to tweet with your secret option MUTE BUTTON.
