Twitter ‘Unmention’ allows users to opt out of tweets
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Twitter is testing by giving users the option to opt out of any conversation on the platform.
The new feature – Unmention – is currently limited to a certain number of users on the web version of Twitter, with the ability to leave a conversation now listed in the drop-down settings for each tweet.
This means users can skip notifications for conversations they never wanted to join, even though the mention will exist as before.
However, it’s unclear when or if the feature will be available to all users, nor its timeline for reaching the iOS and Android versions of the app.
As with all tests of this nature, however, we expect it will be a few weeks or months before it hits the mainstream.
It’s not the only thing Twitter has in the works to improve the user experience, after all.
Just as recently as Elon Musk became the company’s largest shareholder, it’s also become clear that Twitter is finally working on an editing feature — something users have been asking for for years.

This “Unmention” feature, however, we admit, is a simpler addition than an edit button.
With many users often tagged in threads and conversations they aren’t interested in, this offers a bit more control over what actually comes to their attention.
Alongside Twitter’s new security measures that make it easier for users to report harmful users and tweets, and it looks like a lot is being done to help make the platform a more manageable place to scroll.
