Twitter is now working to keep anger out and limit the scope of negative comments, and this time it is mentioned. TechRadar is now reporting the social media forum is developing a “Unmention” feature that allows users to “Unmention” themselves without blocking the user.
The Unmention feature is still a concept feature that is currently being developed
Twitter product designer Dominic Camozzi has given us information about a feature under development on Twitter. The new option can ensure that certain users don’t mention you in the future, as well as allow you to remove someone from your account from someone else’s posts. The designer calls it a habit of “helping to control unwanted attention” on Twitter.
Once you’ve mentioned yourself in someone’s tweet and if the other user isn’t someone you’re following, they can no longer mention you in the future. Plus, you can also block everyone from mentioning you for one day, 3 days, or 7 days. Basically, you can “suspend” your account entries.
Sometimes you want to talk, and sometimes you just … you don’t.
Learn about these early concepts that can help manage unwanted attention on Twitter.
Feedback, especially at this early stage, has been invited (and desired)! pic.twitter.com/6SpzqiwFlL

The last new feature Camozzi is talking about, related to the mentions on Twitter, is a way to prevent the situation from escalating. He refers to mass minima. You can be notified when you suddenly get a lot of mentions, and Twitter allows you to manage the situation, view the tweet or tweets, and change settings to block unwanted attention.
We know that these features are currently being developed. however, there is no information on when they are currently available to the public. When we know, we will definitely keep you up to date.
