Twitter Now Allows You To Mute Specific Users

Today, Twitter announced a much-needed improvement: the ability to mute a user without unfollowing them. The feature will be rolling out over the next few weeks.

Muting a user will be available on an individual’s profile, and you can mute and unmute as often as you like. This is particularly useful if someone you follow has the nasty habit of tweetstorming or if you just want to turn off some news sites until you can catch up on Game of Thrones.

Twitter has been quietly testing this feature, but it will roll out to everyone in the coming weeks. (Muting has long been an option for some Twitter clients, but it’s nice to have a native option.)
