Twitter has released a new update that gives you more control over your notifications known as Mute.

Mute is a feature that allows you to remove an account’s Tweets from your timeline without unfollowing or blocking that account. Muted accounts will not know that you’ve muted them and you can unmute them at any time. To access a list of accounts you have muted, visit your muted accounts settings on twitter.com or your app settings on Twitter for iOS or Android.

Some important things to know about mute:

  • Muted accounts can follow you and you can follow muted accounts. Muting an account will not cause you to unfollow them.
  • Muting an account does not impact the account’s ability to send you a Direct Message.
  • You will no longer receive push or SMS notifications from any muted account.

For muted accounts that you follow:

  • Replies and mentions by the muted account will still appear in your Notifications tab.
  • Tweets from a muted account before the time the account was muted will still be displayed in your Home timeline.
  • When you click or tap into a conversation, replies from muted accounts will be visible.

For muted accounts that you do not follow:

  • Replies and mentions will not appear in your Notifications tab.
  • If you mute an account you do not follow and they start a conversation that mentions you, you will only receive notifications from those you do follow who reply in the conversation and mention you. If you’d like to view all of your mentions, you can do so by searching your username.
  • When you click or tap into a conversation, replies from muted accounts will be not visible.
  • If an account you have not muted Quote Tweets an account you have muted, the quoted Tweet will be hidden with a This Tweet is unavailable message.
