Twitter allows a mute account button

It has been one of the most requested features from fans, and Twitter is finally rolling out the new feature. Twitter has been officially testing the new option with a select group for the past few weeks and now it’s open to the public.
 
Twitter announced today that the new feature “mute,” will become available to everyone, though it is rolling out the feature slowly for all users. In an official statement Twitter said, “In the same way you can turn on device notifications so you never miss a Tweet from your favorite users, you can now mute users you’d like to hear from less. Muting a user on Twitter means their Tweets and Retweets will no longer be visible in your home timeline, and you will no longer receive push or SMS notifications from that user. The muted user will still be able to fave, reply to, 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.”
 
To mute a user from a Tweet on your iOS or Android device or on Twitter for web tap more and then mute @username. To mute someone from their profile page, tap the gear icon on the page and choose mute @username.
