Twitter product designer Dominic Camozzi has unveiled the Unmention feature, which lets you remove mentions from other people’s tweets.
You can often get notifications about mentions you don’t want on Twitter. Even if it is a problem caused by carelessness, sometimes they are tweeted as mentions intentionally for the purpose of violence or harassment. Twitter develops unmentions to control such unwanted mentions.
In August 2020, we added the ability to limit who can reply, but Unmention features the ability to limit not only your own Tweets, but also other people’s Tweets. If someone tweets to you with a mention, it’s also possible to remove the mention from that tweet and prevent you from mentioning yourself in that thread in the future. It is also possible to set a specific person to not be able to mention you for a few days. Blocking it is simple, but you can use it if you don’t want to do it this far.
If you suddenly see a large number of comments you do not want, you can respond quickly and minimize the impact. On the other hand, it can also be used to block uncomfortable tweets. The unmention feature is still an early concept, and details of when it will start testing have not been revealed.
