Twitter Test Lets You 'Unmention' Yourself in Tweets

Twitter may not yet have an edit button, but it is still releasing at least one helpful addition this week. The social network is now launching a previously teased "Unmentioned" tool, which allows you to remove yourself from a conversation. For the time being, the experimental product is only available on the web. Still, you can prevent continuous alerts for a chat you never wanted to join by selecting "leave this conversation" from the tweet's choices.

According to Twitter, unmentioned is now accessible for some users. It's unclear whether or not the functionality will be widely available or when it will be available via mobile apps. The text for the mention stays in its present form; it simply does not send an alert.

Several technologies, like an anti-harassment Safety Mode that instantly disables mean-spirited individuals, have been tested or adopted by the firm to keep remarks respectful. This, on the other hand, might be one of the most useful. Twitter users are frequently bombarded with unsolicited mentions from friends, spammers, etc. This provides greater control over your involvement and allows you to focus on essential topics.
