You can not only mute conversations or other accounts on Twitter, but you can also mute a single word. This was thanks to a tweet from @nonprofWHIT. You could also do it from a tweet.
When you mute a word or phrase, it won’t show up in your Explore tab or event-based notifications. This is what Twitter says it will do now.
Here’s how you do it.
When you use an IPHONE, you can hide words or phrases.
On an iPhone, it’s very simple to use the Twitter app:
- To mute a word, long-press it.
- In the pop-up menu, choose “Mute.”
- You’ll be sent to a page where you can choose from where you want to mute the word (your timeline or notifications), from whom (anyone or people you don’t follow), and the duration (forever, 24 hours, seven days, or 30 days) (forever, 24 hours, seven days, or 30 days).
When you have an Android phone, you can mute words or phrases.
If you have an Android phone, don’t be sad. This also means that you can block words from the Android Twitter app (or the iOS Twitter app, for that matter).

So it takes a little longer than if you just started from a tweet, but it’s still the same.
- Choose your picture in the upper left corner.
- Then, choose “Settings and privacy” > “Privacy and safety.” Then, choose “Mute and block.”
- To get to “muted words,” click on it.
- Press the plus sign, then type the word you want to mute. You can then make the same choices about where, from whom, and how long you want to stay.
Return to the “Muted words” screen, tap the word in question, and choose “Delete word” or “Change mute time.” Read more; What is CGI technology and Its uses
On your desktop, you can hide words or phrases that you don’t want to see.
It’s also possible to mute a word from the Twitter website if you want to.
- Your desktop has a menu on the left that says “More.” Then click on “Settings and privacy.” Then choose “Privacy and safety.” Click “Mute or block.”
- “Muted words” is in the right column. Click on it. The plus sign is in the upper right corner. Click on it.
- It’s now time to enter what word or phrase you want to mute. This is just like how it works with the mobile Twitter apps. You can choose whether or not to mute anyone or people you don’t follow from your timeline or notification feeds, and how long.
- You can click “Save” when you’ve made all of your choices and done everything else.
- If you want to unmute any words, go back to the “Muted words” column and click on the words you want to unmute. Right next to the word, click on the red cross-out volume symbol. Then click “Unmute” on the pop-up window that comes up.
SOME ADDITIONAL NOTES
Twitter has a lot of ways for you to hide different types of information from your timeline and notifications, so you don’t have to see them. As an example:
- It’s also possible to mute just the mentions of specific accounts, but not just the account itself. To do this, put a @ in front of the account name.
- The hashtag for that word will also be muted when you mute a word that has that word in it.
- “spoilers” and “SPOILERS” will both work when you mute. You can also use a phrase with punctuation (like “Hey, you!”).
- Twitter is adding the ability to mute words, phrases, and other things to places other than timelines and notifications. Yesterday, it said that text that had been blocked or muted would also no longer show up in places that deal with events.
First up, Events. Now across Android, iOS, and web, Events from accounts you’ve blocked or muted won’t appear in your Explore tab, “What’s happening” sidebar and emails, or Event-based notifications.— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) January 11, 2022
