The social media service Twitter can be an excellent media platform for all sorts of news circulation. But it is not always rainbows here. People spreading hatred and negativity is common in almost every online platform, like Twitter, Instagram, and even YouTube. So to give its users peace of mind, Twitter has included a mute feature that allows the users to mute an account on twitter that they want.
Muting someone is not equal to blocking someone. Muting will only hide any tweets that the muted user puts out in the future. But what if you are on the receiving end of it? Maybe you offended someone for some reason, and now you are wondering whether that person has muted you or not. In this article, we will guide you on how you can tell if someone has muted you on Twitter.
How to find if someone has muted you on Twitter?
If you could figure out if someone has muted you right from the Twitter app itself, then that would only escalate drama and tension between the two individuals. So Twitter does not let you know about someone muting you on the app.
Muting only hides the tweets; it does not block out a person. And there is a platform called Tweetdeck that you can use to figure out whether a person has muted you on twitter or not. For people who have never heard of it, it is a twitter account manager app that acts like a twitter dashboard.
To figure out whether or not someone has muted you, follow the steps mentioned below.
- Go to Tweetdeck’s website by clicking here.
- Log in to your twitter account here.
- Then create a Home column in the main view.
- Then in the column, add the person whom you suspect has muted on Twitter.
- Now post a tweet for every one of your followers to see and check if that tweet shows up in the home column or not.
If you see the post there, then the person has not muted you. But if you don’t see it there, then chances are that the person you suspect has indeed muted you.
Now if you are wondering how you can mute someone on Twitter, then the process is quite simple. When you see a tweet from that person, open that Tweet, click on the down arrow icon and then select Mute.
You can mute some from their profile too. Just open up the profile you want to mute and click on the three-dot icon. You will see the Mute option. Click on it.
So that is how you can figure out whether someone has muted you on Twitter or not. If you have any questions or queries about this guide, then comment down below, and we will get back to you.
