Getting stuck in a thread full of people means there is very little hope of being untagged from the conversation. Twitter has recently added the option to “mute a conversation” but it isn’t very user-friendly i.e. almost impossible to find. ?
Whether you are on the website or an app to mute a conversation just click the arrow in the top right corner of the tweet and it will drop down a menu giving you quite a few options but most importantly the ability to mute the conversation. Yay ?
