I didn't realise that Twitter had made a small but welcome change to their official app that makes it a nicer place to be (for me at least).
You now have more options for filtering your timeline, if you long press on a user avatar you can now
- Unfollow - handy if you want to reduce some of the noise in your Twitter experience
- Mute - handy if someone you like is doing a lot of RT, you can mute the RT'd users
- Block - harder version of the above, I rarely do this
- Report - for spam
Now if Twitter can bring in the ability to Mute keywords then the official app is going to almost be on par with some of the best third party apps.
