Twitter is great unless you follow that annoying friend who lives, breathe and eat on the micro blogging platform. Sure you can go ahead block annoying people or better just mute them and they will never know what you did.
The popular micro blogging platform twitter is trying out a mute button option that will let you mute annoying users tweet and retweets without unfollowing them. The mute button is already available on profiles but it has not been made accessible to all twitter users.
To find out whether you have access to this new twitter feature you can go on a friends timeline click on the gear icon and check if you see mute option.
The mute button pretty much work like the unfollow button on Facebook that unables you to see all updates from a friend without unfriending him.
This might be a small change but it is a welcoming one considering the fact that the 140 word world is attracting people from different age group.
