Twitter Tries Out 'Mute' Feature For Irritating Tweets

Twitter is trialling a feature in its mobile apps that allows users to mute accounts that are becoming irritating.

Unlike the block function, which is designed to stop communications with an undesirable user completely, muting is intended to be temporary.

It will mean users can block out people who, for example, live tweet football matches every weekend, or post about TV talent shows.

Many third-party Twitter apps have offered a mute option for some time.

According to technology news site The Verge, selected users running Twitter's Apple iOS and Google Android apps reported seeing the feature appear.

The Verge described muting as a "stealth unfollow", ideal for ignoring work colleagues.
