    This isn’t a functionality that is currently available through Twitter.

        You are very insensitive for not allowing users to respond to this problem. When I have an obnoxious mention, it sits atop my Hootsuite until I get enough mentions to drive it down the page. Why do I have to keep looking at it? Why can't you provide a "hide" button? Don't you have the engineering capacity?

        Are you really all that stupid and insensitive?

        See how it feels?

        actually if you block the person the tweets will disappear from the twitter web client but not hootsuite. YOu could also emulate the mute functionality in clients like Tweetdeck

        I've been @mentioned in a series of tweets that can cause me legal problems how can I remove them?

        I want the ability to untag/unmention myself from Twitter posts that think I am somebody else. I own my name on Twitter but No I am not the famous wrestler ericbischoff.

        I understand you can't delete someone else's tweet mentioning your account. Like the rest of the internet, you largely can't censor what others say. What I'd like is the purely cosmetic ability to remove something from my HOOTSUITE mention stream. This IS possible on Twitter (removing from your personal view) - through blocking. Why does this not carry over to Hootsuite?

        How do you delete abusive tweets that other users on twitter have posted? I have had to change my username and password, etc, but the abusive tweets still show up with my original username/screen name and I am not happy about this. I have a lovely girlfriend and if she was to view these posted tweets she would probably believe them even though they are untrue.

        Please would someone who is both kind, understanding and has the knowledge to delete tweets that other users have sent on Twitter, I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

        LET US BE ALLOWED TO DELETE @MENTION COMMENTS! THIS ISN'T FAIR!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please ....Its not for rude comments! Its because you thought you were cute till someone posted the truth ! Very annoying! If u post it .....own it!

        I'm hating twitter right now!
        We need to delete these harmful mentions!

        If you get spammy messages, click on their username to bring the account up on the panel. Click on the 'Report Spammer' link which will remove their posts from your Twitter timeline, doesn't report it from your Hootsuite stream for some reason but no-one should be able to see it on Twitter at least!

      • DanielaDaniela commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree! 'cause even if i delete the tweet that the person replied to, or if i change my username, my account is still linked to that tweet!

        Thats outrageous...
        Besides the fact I want to delete spam from my Mentions and also an abusive comment from a fellow I don't even know..., To make it worse I have an Android app called Tweeter for LG which is considering the tweets in "mentions" as a new tweet constantly and reminding me everyday of both the spam tweet and the abusive comment in mentions ..
        WHY doesn't the tweeter people include a "delete" buttom.
        I think they are parte of the NWO linked up with the bankers and the social-darwinian niilists who want to make people everyday dumber and more conformed with a "control-oppressive" society ruled by Lucifer worshipers...
        Anyways....

        I've been abused today and as there is no way of taking down this insult from a complete stranger I am leaving Twitter. Not becuase of the small minded individual but because Twitter couldn't care less....you've lost another user

      • Kim BruzeauKim Bruzeau commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I also don't think this is an appropriate response. Many of these @mentions are bullying. With all the publicity going on right now with bullying and it's negative affects one would think Twitter would take a a stronger stance. I received 2 days worth of harassing mentions. Please take those more serious. Your blanket answer Danielle as a representative os Twitter, makes it sound as though the company could care less.

        If Twitter will not enable users to delete a spammer mention, could not HootSuite create a "hide" function at least? This way the mentions are not deleted, but at least hidden from view for HootSuite users.
