Twitter Users Can Now Mute Notifications From Unknown Accounts

Twitter has introduced a new feature permitting its users to mute notifications from unwanted connections.

The new feature means you can mute notifications from newly registered users, accounts you don’t follow and account holders who do not follow you.

“Now you have even more control over your notifications,” Twitter said.

“You might receive notifications from certain types of accounts you’d like to avoid. In addition to enabling the quality filter, you can now choose to disable notifications” from specific accounts.

The changes build on Twitter’s commitment to improving the online safety of its users. Earlier this year, Twitter implemented a number of changes such as making it easier to report abusive Tweets, stopping the creation of new abusive accounts, implementing safer search results, getting rid of abusive or low-quality tweets and reducing notifications from conversations started by people you’ve blocked or muted.

To take advantage of Twitter’s latest functionality check out the directions below:

For the web:

  • Go to your Notifications timeline.
  • To filter your notifications, click on Settings.
  • Check the box of your preferred filter(s) to turn on.

For iOS:

  •  Go to your Notifications timeline 
  • Tap on the gear icon 
  • Tap Advanced filters.
  • Drag the slider next to your preferred filter(s) to turn on.

To set filters using Twitter for Android:

  • Go to your Notifications timeline 
  • Tap on the gear icon 
  • Tap Advanced filters.
  • Check the box of your preferred filter(s) to turn on.
