Micro-blogging site Twitter said it isAtesting a new way for users to remove themselves from conversations they do not want to be a part of.
The company said that the experimental feature is currently available on the Web for some of the users.
“We are experimenting with Unmentioning, a way to help you protect your peace and remove yourself from conversations, available on Web for some of you now,” the company wrote on its platform.
The micro-blogging platform has likely tested or deployed several features to keep mentions civil, including an anti-harassment Safety Mode.
