How to Hide Tweets Of People You Follow Without Unfollowing Them

On Monday, Twitter announced the introduction of a new account feature called MUTE, to people who use Twitter iPhone and Android apps and; a change I personally have been waiting for.

Mute is a feature that allows you to hide a user’s Tweets from your timeline without you having to unfollow them. When you mute a user on Twitter, their content will no longer be visible to you on your Timeline. Unlike blocking, the person can still follow you, interact with your tweets and can still send your direct messages.

How To Mute a Twitter user on

Muting from a Tweet:

Mute On Twitter

    ==> From a Tweet, click More at the bottom of the Tweet.
    ==> Click Mute.

Muting from a profile:

    ==> Go to the profile page of the person you wish to mute.
    ==> Click the gear icon  on their profile page. This brings up a drop-down actions menu.
    ==> Select Mute from the options listed.

Once you’ve muted a user on the web, you will see a confirmation banner. If you made a mistake, you can click Undo to unmute a user right away.

NB:  When you mute a user, their previous Tweets will still be displayed; only Tweets from the point you muted them will be hidden. @ replies and @ mentions from muted users you follow will still appear in your Notifications tab.
