Have the option to mute users in your timeline.
Please, add silent/mute button for hashtags and users.
Mute Button would be great! Sometimes i want to mute some users who spam my TL, but not unfollow them, just mute
I'd like to be able to filter tweets OUT of my stream based on keywords. For example, I'd like a place to be able to have a place to enter #yelp #4sq #getglue #blip etc so that I never see tweets in any of my columns containing those words.
I have several streams based on keyword search that I monitor through Hootsuite. These streams pull in tweets from various twitter accounts using my keywords, but that are totally unrelated to my topic (e.g Ciena our company name vs Ciena as a person's name).
I'd like the ability to "ignore" all future tweets from specific twitter accounts as a way to "clean up" the keyword streams that I monitor.
Stop spam from sources like "via Growth Memory", "via firstname.lastname@example.org" etc
Such an opportunity exists in TweetDeck, Hotot...
Help us from SPAM in hashtags (e.g. #samara #avtosamara)
As it once worked in twitter http://blog.twitter.com/2008/05/how-replies-work-on-twitter-and-how.html
As it works currently
And as it's possible to configure in tweetdeck:
Checking “Include @replies from your friends to others” in TweetDeck options still lets me “eavesdrop” on my friends.
I like to have a twitter tab containing timeline, mentioned and RTed. I want to be able to silence the timeline so i only get buzzed when i get a mention or RT, but can still see the timeline without changing tab.
Echofon has a Mute Function that allows for muting users, and muting trending topics.
Some people just seem to add updates that are not relevant out of boredom or who knows. I don't want to necessarily unfollow them but sometimes Muting is needed.
A mute or muzzle feature would be nice, so I can tune out a friend w/o unfollowing.
It would be nice to have the ability to filter tweets from certain users in a specific stream or better yet, to filter tweets contaning specific words on that stream.
please please please add mute feature for users, hashtags, etc. all are adding that feature now
Often, the answers to other users occupy the bulk of tape and at the same time bear minimulnuyu meaning. There is a sense dobavt option to disable showing responses to other polzovataley in the main belt.
Sometimes a friend may be at a conference machine-gun tweeting with a hashtag. It would be great to be able to mute that user or that hashtag for a pre-determined period of time, so the mute would expire after the number hours you set.
By doing so users could create specialized lists that they only read on their corresponding feed column and would be out of the home feed, by doing so users would be able to filter out lists from the home feed and read them only when interested
I would like to be able to mute certain twitter people and hide facebook updates. I'm overwhelmed with updates from products, TV shows and friends who post too much without anything to say. I would love to be able to "hide" updates like I can on the facebook site.
I'm getting a lot of spam in my searches, and I'd like to be able to mask it by hiding tweets from regular spammers. Sure I can -remove them from the search query - but that only works for 140 characters, and my searches are picking up lots of spammers. So I'd like a hootsuite-wide mask list - that I can add users to - and then tweets from them never appear in my hootsuite.
You know how some people you follow tweet 10 times in a row or @ reply to everyone and their cousin. It would be nice to be able to just "ignore" or "hide" their tweets for 24 hours or 1 week or 1 month without unfollowing them. If I completely unfollow them I may never come back to them but hiding someone for a little while would be nice sometimes.
There are people that i have decided to unfollow for various reasons.
These aren't "bad" people worthy of an official block or spam flag. They just don't use Twitter the way I do so I'm not interested in their clutter.
Since I usually don't remember who they are (I have a large follower base) I occaisionally re-follow them, only to then unfollow them again when they do whatever it was that turned me off the first time.
I'd love to have a way to flag people that I don't want to follow - that's just for my own use, not official with twitter or anything - so that I can recognize and not re-follow them.
We’ll examine ways to mute users in specific streams.

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?
Muting hashtags is equally, if not more, important than muting users. Something like Tweetdeck's Global FIlter would be ideal.
Just now checking out alternatives and HootSuite was dumped because of lack of mute for users. MG's use case below is exactly why this feature is important to me.
This is needed, examples of when it works.
1. i love my friend Jeff's tweets from Monday to Friday but on the weekends it's all #NFL and it's not something i'm interested in... muting #NFL (like tweetbot on the mobile) allows me to tailor his tweets to my liking. Much like following weekday Jeff and not following Weekend Jeff... Filter fixes this.
2. My friend Paul just went through a breakup, now while i'm a nice supportive friend he's kinda gone on this "love quotes" thing so i woud like to mute him for a week until he gets over it. I don't want to unfollow him just kinda give myself a break without hurting his feelings.
3. I have zero interest in pope news and it seems half my timeline is talking about it this week, muting the tag #POPE or the word "pope" will simply remove any tweets but allow all the awesome people i follow without removing anything else (i also muted "middleton" when the royal baby tweets filled my timeline)
just my examples of how lovely this is for tailoring your timeline.

While I like the idea of muting users, I like better the idea of muting themes, like words or hashtags.
Xavier Thiriaux commented
+1 if tweetbot and slices can do it, you can surely do it as well!
David Marler commented
Spent a bit of time discussing this idea with the Hootsuite helpdesk team.
You can "mute" out people in your search field by using the minus option (-), example of mine below where #qldpol is the hashtag.
However, the field is limited in character length by Twitter and Hootsuite are not able to alter it.
Only other suggestion I had was to make a similar feature to the auto scheduling which is available to Pro users where by you enter all the names of Tweeps you want to block into a file and then upload it some how. When a new irritant comes along, you just add them to the file and re-upload. Not sure if that can be done, maybe the character length is still an issue with this.
Important feature down here in Australia as we are now in an election year and the country is deeply divided into left and right wings. Would be beneficial to block out the annoying feeds from people who swear at you, don't back up their statements with sound links, general mistruths and obscurantism.
#qldpol -EndlessDeficits -Redrues -DesHoughton -Dean_Moss -ZZiillaa -blackkunt -gtwarrior47 -Matthew_rj -Auspol_Ebooks -TheFacelessSpin -LaborFAIL -TedTBall -NoDirectAction -Brian_R_Allen -DM900rr -BevForte -GI_Gillard -BashedByDrunks -AxeCo2Tax -Prronto -LaborDirt -henkluf -brucemills -julesmoxon -mymatemike -DaKwozzie -gvandersee -M_Mulcahy -Qlder -the33g -drppretendersen -RussellEgan -Yalboroo -Wobbly_one -dotnetnoobie
David Marler commented
Wonder what happened to this idea?
+1 for this idea. Many Hootsuite competitors already have options to mute hashtags or users.
Would be great if there's some way to filter out users that already follow you -- good way to find new people to follow.
needs more 7 votes? this has to be done right away!
Jeffery C Lawshe commented
+1 for this: I've started using the feature on TweetCaster for iOS and I can't believe how much easier it is to stay in-tune with the content that matters (while still maintaining relationships with people who matter).

Hi, i love the twitter through Hootsuite and i wanted to use it but it doesn't have a mute option. It really makes difference so please find a way to add this option.
I used to use Twitter through Hootsuite for a long time, then trolls started posting in my favorite hashtags. Being unable to mute them forced me to use another platform.
Please add this feature so I can go back to Hootsuite.
Lara Mulady commented
God, yes please.
Mark Grant commented
Over 2 years later and still no sign of this basic feature. Is it a case that hootsuite is dead, or are they going bust or something? Time to move to an app made by a more proactive company i think, these deadbeats are yesterdays news.
Hi Chris - can you give us any sense as to whether muting certain users might be a near-term feature?
I don't want simply to block one or more users, I'd like the facilty to stop any of my search keywords bringing up users whose names contain that word. For example, if I search on the word "peregrine", I'd like to exclude tweets with @***peregrine*** There's simply too much chatter appearing in searches that is just not relevant.
Andy Bryant commented
Hey guys... How long before we have the ability to mute users? I've reported and blocked @_dlittleprince as a spammer for at-mentioning me multiple times, and yet I still see his @mention of me in hootsuite - which is very annoying given his stupid animated gif logo.
Mark J P commented
I really need it too to mute the x-factor tweets. I was able to do this in Tweet Deck but I prefer using HootSuite now. Come on guys, can you just allow us to exclude any tweets with certain keywords from appearing in Twitter streams? This would be an extremely useful feature and feels like it shouldn't be a huge amount of work for you guys. :)
