Silence The Noise: How To Mute A Twitter User

Do you find somebody to be a Chatty Cathy on Twitter and you don’t want to unfollow them, but you just want to find a way of muting them? Well, in fact, you can mute them.

I’m going to use Sarah as an example. Nothing against Sarah, she just happens to be in the middle of the screen. If I wanted to mute her, all I need to do is click on the three buttons and then click mute.

The benefit to this is that you’ll still be notified of any @replies or if they mentioned you in a tweet. However, they will not show up in your feed.

The other option of course would be to remove the person completely from your feed or create list and just follow the list versus the generic feed in Twitter. But if you’re looking for something in the middle, the mute feature might be just what you’re looking for.
