Twitter Now Lets You Remove Unwanted Mentions

Twitter has launched Unmentioning, a new feature that allows people to remove themselves from conversations.

Twitter now allows users to untag themselves in tweets using a new “unmentioned.”

Unmentioned allows people the freedom to withdraw from conversations they do not want to be part of.

This is a better option than muting a conversation. It removes the link from the person mentioned and stops others from repeating them.

This is how Twitter unmentioned you.

How Twitter Unmentioning Works

Three things are unmentioned:

  • It removes the Twitter link from the original tweet and all replies.
  • This prevents people from ever mentioning you again in the same conversation.
  • This stops all notifications regarding the conversation that you were tagged in.

Tap the three dots menu list in the top right corner of the tweet to unmention yourself. Select “Leave this Conversation” and confirm your decision. All tags will be deleted.

This allows people to edit live tweets in a way they have never been able to before.

The company isn’t taking the launch of Twitter’s unmentioned feature lightly, given how important it adds to Twitter.

Unmentioned launches today, June 2021, after a period of extensive feedback and development.

This version is smaller than the one that was shown last year. Twitter promised greater protections against unwanted mentions. This included the ability to ban statements from people you don’t follow.

It is unclear if this feature has been removed or will still be available at some point in the future. You can’t prevent people from mentioning your name. Only after an event can you take any action.

Today, Twitter users across all devices can use Unmentioning.
