Twitter wants to let users remove the tag from tweets

Twitter wants to let users remove the tag from tweets

Twitter is working on a new feature that allows users to chat from other people’s tweets.

Dominic Camozzi, a privacy designer on Twitter, shared screenshots of how the feature might work to get feedback before pushing it live.

The idea is to let Twitter users control unwanted attention with the ability to remove the tag from conversations they will not be involved in.

Here is a look at the early concepts.

Unmention yourself on Twitter

Twitter users will soon have a quick and easy way to remove the tag on their account from a tweet that they do not want to be associated with.

In Twitter’s early design, users can tap the three-dot menu item at the top of a tweet in which they are mentioned and select “Remove attention from this conversation.”

The link to the user’s Twitter profile is removed from the tweet and they will not be bothered by it again.

Manage reviews from people you do not follow

When users are mentioned in tweets of accounts that they do not follow, they get a special notification.

Users then have the option to publicize themselves by tapping “Remove publicity themselves” from the notification tab.

When this option is selected, the person who sent the tweet will not be notified of the removal.

If users choose to mention themselves from tweets by people they do not follow, the author will not be able to mention that user again in the future.

Prohibition mention proactively

Users will be able to proactively manage their publicity by restricting specific accounts from a new settings screen.

There will also be an option to only allow publicity from people that the user follows.

For ultimate peace and quiet, users can even pause all mentions from everyone for a certain period of time.

If you select the option to pause all mentions, users can select intervals of one day, three days, or seven days.

Control mass reviews

Finally, Twitter wants to introduce safeguards for apartments where users receive a lot of mentions at once.

Twitter only warns the user when they get a lot of mentions. This alone can be useful for people who have turned push notifications into publicity.

The alarm will indicate how many tweets the user has been mentioned in and by how many users. From there, they can review tweets and choose to shop if necessary.

This may be the time when the ability to pause all mentions will be most helpful.

It is not yet known when unmentioning will become available, though it will definitely be rolled out at some point when Twitter feels it is ready for launch.

As the purpose of previewing this feature is to collect feedback, the final product may differ from what is displayed in these screens.

Currently, the only ways to deal with unwanted attention on Twitter is to block an account, make your own account private, or choose the option to “mute this conversation.”

None of these solutions are ideal when all you want to do is remove the tag from a tweet. And muffling a conversation does not remove the mention, it just prevents further messages.

Users can remove the tag from photos on Twitter, so it would be appropriate if they could also tag themselves from regular tweets.
