Muting users on Twitter – Achtung! State, DoD, Other US Censors

The Twitter Help Center has a great webpage titled: Muting users on Twitter.

From that page:

Mute is a feature that allows you to remove an account’s Tweets from your timeline without unfollowing or blocking that account. Muted accounts will not know that you’ve muted them and you can unmute them at any time. To access a list of accounts you have muted, visit your muted accounts settings on or your app settings on Twitter for iOS or Android.

Instead of leaning on Twitter to close accounts, the State Department, Department of Defense and others can compile Twitter Mute Lists that have the Twitter accounts that any reasonable person should mute.

The Catholic News Service used to publish movie ratings in Our Sunday Visitor and while the rating system has changed since I last saw it (think 1960’s), it was a great way to pick out movies.

I think most ones I saw were either condemned or some similar category. 😉

A twitter mute list from State, DoD and others would save me time of searching for offensive content to view. I am sure that is true for others as well.

Oh, not to mention that people who are offended can choose to not view such content. Sorry, almost go carried away there.

How’s that for a solution to “propaganda” on Twitter? If it offends you, don’t look. Leave the rest of us the hell alone.
