What you need to know
- Twitter has finally rolled out the ability to untag yourself from conversations you don’t want to participate in.
- The platform began testing the new feature with a small group of users earlier this year.
- Everyone can now “unmention” themselves from any conversation in which they have been tagged.
Twitter’s mention feature is useful for sharing, but the problem arises when toxic conversations begin pushing notifications on your phone. The service has finally addressed this quandary by introducing the ability to remove yourself from unwanted discussions.
The new feature, aptly called “unmentioning,” is now available to everyone following a limited testing period earlier this year. Twitter announced the new capability in a tweet (opens in new tab).
