    Cool. That's great. I can't wait to try it out... Wait, hold on, I may not be able to check it out because I don't follow anyone, in fact all I use a twitter account for is to sign into other things quickly and painlessly.
     
  3. I can "not follow" entire Twitter. It's simple, I never visit their website. Why on Earth would I care about "muting" something that I don't follow at all ? This is akin to worrying about muting TV commercials for those who don't watch TV anymore.

    A solution for first world problems ...

    Got to love all the people who come onto social media posts talking about how they don't use social media.

    Congratulations.

    Would be more useful if it would hide your tweets from other people specifically.
     
  7. Aaah! The freedom of not using Twitter or Facebook! Life is so less complicated!!
