Twitter is working on an ‘unmentioning’ feature, to protect your peace

Twitter is testing out an ‘unmentioning’ feature on its web version for a limited number of users to be able to remove themselves from conversations.

In a Tweet, the social media company announced, “We’re experimenting with Unmentioning—a way to help you protect your peace and remove yourself from conversations.” And the fact that the announcement came from its Safety arm means that it is more of a privacy issue.

In a GIF, Twitter showed how the feature lets you unmention yourself from Tweets. Meaning that going forward, when someone @s you in a conversation that you don’t want to be in, you can easily stop letting it bother you.

It is accessible from your notification tab, and when you use the feature, it untags your username, stops future mentions, and stops notifications from that particular convo. This is a much welcome development as viral Tweets where you are mentioned can keep blowing up your phone the whole day.

Facebook has been using this kind of feature for years, where you can untag yourself from photos and posts. Meanwhile, Twitter has not said when it will roll out the feature for everyone as it is still testing out how it works for users.
