The unique feature of this option is that the muted user will still be able to fave, reply to, and retweet your Tweets; you just won’t see any of that activity in your timeline.The muted user will not know that you’ve muted them, and of course you can unmute at any time.
The step to mute a user from a Tweet on iOS or Android device or on Twitter for web is to . click at the tap more and then mute @username. To mute someone from their profile page, tap the gear icon on the page and choose mute @username.
