Twitter is testing a new “mute” feature which would allow its users to hide tweets from people without un-following them.

Some of those who use Twitter are now seeing a new option that will allow them to mute those who they follow. This simply takes that person’s tweets away from your timeline until the user manually un-mutes them, according to The Verge.

The new feature will make it possible for users to “unfollow” without any confrontation from the other user. Essentially, it is made for those who are forced to follow people for professional and social reasons, but do not care to read what they tweet daily. It can also be used to hide spoilers for TV shows and movies.
