How to mute words or hashtags on Twitter

Twitter is a social network whose popularity has increased in recent years in Spain. The application is kept up-to-date continuously, such as modifying retweets clearly. In this social network, it is common for there to be discussions, fights and a lot of controversies, something that many get tired of. Although there are ways to avoid having to see certain content.

On Twitter we find various filters, which allow you to mute certain words or hashtags. By using this option, the social network will hide those tweets where we come across those particular words or hashtags. So we can filter insults or content that we don't want to see.

Mute words or hashtags on Twitter

When there are words you're not interested in seeing, such as insults or some that are used to talk about a particular topic or person, Twitter gives you the ability to mute them. The same goes for hashtags on the social network. They are presented as a method with which you can avoid seeing tweets from some specific topics,which you don't want to see, without having to block accounts or users for it. The steps to mute these words or hashtags on the social network are:

  • Open Twitter on your phone.
  • Tap the top three horizontal stripes.
  • Go to Settings & Privacy.
  • Go to Notifications.
  • Go to Silenced Words.
  • Press the "+" button.
  • Enter the word or hashtag to block.

Decide if you want to stop receiving tweet notifications with that word and whether you want to hide those tweets from your feed.

Select how long you want to mute this word.

By setting this, you won't see any tweets that use those words in your feed. In addition, the social network will never notify you if someone uploads a tweet with that word or hashtag in question. The time when that word is muted is something that depends on each user, as there may be a term that will be temporary, so you can mute them for a few days or weeks, and others forever.

A good way to customize Twitter,making those topics that you find unpleasant or that bother you will not appear in your feed on the social network. In addition, whenever you want you can either add or remove words to your list of muted words in the app.
