Every now and then, somebody you are following on Twitter starts to be annoying. One option is to un-follow such people but then you might forget to follow them back again. Also, they might realize that you are not following them and cause a sourness in your relationship.
A new Twitter application Muuter, solves this problem by temporarily muting these friends for you. Just enter the Twitter username of that person and specify the time period you want to mute them for. It can be anything from 1 hour to 1 week. If during that time period you decide to revert back, you can simply click on cancel and start receiving their tweets again. When you are putting somebody on mute, you also have the option to notify that person and/or tweet this publicly. (Why on God’s earth would somebody do that? Anyways, the option is there if somebody decides to use it).
There is no software to download and no sign-ups to do. Simply go to Muuter.com and sign in to your Twitter account. After you grant Muuter access to your Twitter account, you will be all set to use it.
