    Hello everyone. Thank you for your feedback.

    While we do not have this feature at this time, we are looking towards the possibility of getting it on our features roadmap for future updates to the Hootsuite web dashboard.

    Thank you all for using Hootsuite, and thank you for your patience.
    Travis | @Hootsuite_Help

        I hope Hooutsuite can filter specific words that appear in the stream line then removed them and-or filter unwanted person in the stream line.

        That this doesn't exist is a reason to switch clients. Got a 250-tweet convo going on in my @ mentions, and the only way to stop it is to block someone I don't want to block. Speaking of blocking, I need a different client for that too. I've given Hootsuite years to implement this basic functionality. You can get lost now.

        Yes, please! My streams are all Twitter searches which ignore blocked users. I try to block out spam accounts by adding -userName to the search criteria, but it doesn't always work if they have things like underscores in their names and I've got dozens of usernames in my search string. Please, PLEASE put in this simple feature for me to add a list of user names to filter out.

        Not just mute USERS but keywords please??? Don't want to have to switch to Tweetdeck.

        I would LOVE this feature, because my city's current hashtag was taken over by some spamming foreigners and it's so hard to follow local tweets with them filling up the feed with crap.

        I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Unless you are on 24/7 and watch every tweet? You are never going to see every tweet. Second, you followed the guy, if he is spammy, then Unfollow him. Lastly, I NEVER unfollow, mute of have to mute anyone. I have found people that are censorious, and judgemental have other issues besides, and this is the tip of the iceberg for them. My Vote for Hootsuite? None of these people have given reason why it's even important, Twitter is adding a mute button, but I think it's ridiculous. And I have 4 million followers ~ I am a believer in Free speech, people have a right to tweet what they want.

        While I would like a mute per stream, I would upvote adding a MUTE/UNMUTE link on Twitter accounts ASAP

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Every mobile app I've had in the past three years has a mute feature or added one eventually. When I used TweetDeck, the mute feature was a godsend. That is, until Twitter bought and ruined that platform, which led me to HootSuite. The fact that you all can't seem to take the time to add something so simple is disheartening, and has me looking for other options and platforms for my computer.

        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).

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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

      • Jay StephensJay Stephens commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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?

        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!!
