How To Mute Tweets With Specific Keywords And Phrases


Twitter settings can mute tweets with specific phrases and keywords.

Although these tweets still will be visible on timeline, they no longer will be included in notifications either through emails, push notifications and text messages/SMS. This is a useful feature to reduce spam and also when being tagged in unrelated tweets.

Here is how to enable this feature in Twitter.com :

Access Settings by clicking the profile photo dropdown menu.
