Twitter testing mute button

twitter-logoTwitter can become a crowded place. When you are following a number of people, especially some out of sympothy, your timeline can get watered down to the point where it’s seemingly impossible to find the tweets of those you actually want to read without unfollowing and/or blocking others.

Thankfully, according to various users out there, Twitter is going to begin allowing users to silence accounts without hurting their feelings with the unfollow or block.

Though the concept of muting Twitter users isn’t new (TweetDeck has allowed the feature for a few years now),  this is the first time that the ability is coming to the official mobile app of the popular social network.

So far, it appears that only a small amount of users have the ability to mute others, but the full rollout is expected in the near future.
