        I stopped using Hootsuite months ago because I can't mute a user. Include this feature and I'll be back.

        I fully agree with Jay Stevens' post on Oct 30, 2013. An option to permanently and temporarily mute users and hashtags in main Twitter stream is the most important missing functionality of HootSuite to me (both desktop and mobile versions).

        This feature is so important to me I can't use Hootsuite without it. You've been talking, time for action.

        agree with those suggesting:
        1 - mute individual user
        2 - mute hashtag/word/phrase
        3 - mute list within stream

        have the mute default to (say) 24h, with option to set exact expiry time or make it permanent until revoked, and when revoking, always display list of all current filters?

        Yes - let's revisit this asap! Other apps offer this feature.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This needs to be brought up for discussion again! In my community, there are multiple Twitter accounts that are bots, and are clogging up streams of hashtags that I have to monitor for work with a pointless post every few minutes. I have reported them, but it hasn't done anything. I would give anything to be able to "mute" these accounts and make them disappear!!

        Along these same lines, I'd like to be able to filter out a list from my Twitter stream. For example, I have a Twitter list named "media" - this list is full of very chatty people. I would like the ability to see tweets from everyone I follow with these chatty media people filtered out.

        No, its not mute users - its mute topics - like bloody football. It can be done on other devices, come on Hootsuite, if we can put 'football' in a column, it can't be that hard to add a mute option.

        sorry to be blunt: but you must be kidding us: you are "considering" this option since October 2011? Hello? It is August 2013? 2 years to think about a feature that is obviously needed and a no brainer.

        Would be great to be able to mute some hashtags... like #royalbaby #yolo and the rest... Ruining my timeline!

      • ValerieValerie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to be able to filter out tweets that are completely in a foreign language.

      • grizeldagloopgrizeldagloop commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I had Echofon (now defunct for Windows) and I really miss this. I've tried Twitbin, which has the feature, but users don't stay muted on closing and reopening the browser, so it's useless.
        I'd like to be able to mute until I decide to unmute, not the Twitter client.

      • Crumble NeedyCrumble Needy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need the ability to mute users and hashtags _in the timeline_, not just in a search. This is fairly common twitter client functionality - and it's there in Seesmic. When are you going to integrate the platforms?
