Twitter reportedly is working on giving users the proficiency to prohibit others from mentioning them in Tweets.
According to a Monday tweet from Twitter product designer Dominic Camozzi, “the logical aspect is in its initial stages and would be implied to assist “control unwanted attention.” Camozzi said the detail would enable you to untag yourself from a Tweet or discussion you don’t want to be involved in, as well as turn off your mentions for a particular period, such as one day or one week.
Just pick ‘Unmentioned yourself from this conversation from the more info menu and the link to your profile will be removed,” he wrote.
He put in that if someone you don’t follow comments you with the @ symbol, you’ll acquire a notification and can unmentioned yourself if you so choose, and that user will not be eligible to mention you again.
While normal Twitter users with less than 1,000 followers might not find this feature super useful, high-profile accounts or—as one Twitter user pointed out—those with more common user names might profit from this unmentioned feature.
Others also characterized the aspect that could curb harassment on the forum by not allowing users to gang up on a person through tweeting in a thread.
Camozzi didn’t comment when the detail would be available, but said that Twitter is gawking for feedback on the concept.
An unmentioned feature potentially could come to be one of the only features on Twitter’s new subscription service that debuted earlier this month, understood as Twitter Blue. While the service is nowadays only available in Australia and Canada, subscribers get a permit to new features like the proficiency to undo a Tweet, a Reader Mode to make reading long threads easier, and Bookmark Folders.
