San Francisco: Twitter will now allow users to 'mute' posts from people they are not interested in hearing from at the popular one-to-many messaging service. Paul Rosania, Product Manager, Twitter said in a blog post, "The muted user will not know that you've muted them, and of course you can unmute at any time."

The feature is being added to Twitter iPhone and Android applications as well. Muting someone at Twitter stops any messages they "tweet" at the service from popping up in the timeline of whoever hit the virtual button, according to Rosania. Push or text messages from muted Twitter accounts will not be delivered. People will still be able to see, "re-tweet," or comment on Twitter posts of those who have muted them, but the person doing the muting will not be looped into the activity.
"Mute gives you even more control over the content you see on Twitter by letting you remove a user's content from key parts of your Twitter experience," concluded Rosania.
