Twitter Inc TWTR is making available a previously restricted feature that allows all users to unsubscribe from conversations.
What happened: Twitter’s “security” handle shared an animation describing how users can use the “Unmentioning” feature.
Sometimes you want to see yourself.

Why it matters: The “Unmentioning” feature was in development for over a year. Last year, Twitter’s Senior Product Designer Dominic Camozzi shared a teaser on the platform.
If someone you don’t follow @ mentions you, you’ll get a special notification. If you don’t name yourself from there, the Tweet author won’t be able to name you anymore. pic.twitter.com/RTFBENkPFf— Dominic Camozzi (@_dcrc_) June 14, 2021
Back then, Camozzi had said that if someone you don’t follow mentions you, you’d get a special notification. If you “don’t list” yourself, the tweet’s author will no longer be able to name you.
Last year, Twitter introduced a “Safety Mode” feature aimed at blocking aggressive and hateful users.
Price Action: On Monday, Twitter shares fell 11.3% to $32.67 in the regular session, according to Benzinga Pro data.
