Sometimes you’ll find that an account that you used to want to follow just doesn’t post the sort of content that you want to see anymore. In this sort of situation, you may want to stop seeing tweets from one or more accounts. There are a few potential ways to do this.
One of the more obvious solutions to not wanting to see content from a certain account anymore is to unfollow it. To do so, you’ll need to view the profile of the account you wish to unfollow. You can either find a tweet from them in your feed and click their username or use the search function to find the account.
Once you’ve opened the account profile, click the triple-dot icon on the far-right, next to the “Following” or “Follow” button and select “Follow from accounts…”.
You’ll now be presented with a list of the accounts you’re signed in as and which of them follow or do not follow the account. To unfollow the account simply click “Following” on the account that you wish to unfollow from.
Tip: The “Following” text will change to “Unfollow” when you hover your mouse over the button.
You can mute a Twitter account in much the same way; by accessing the profile of the account you wish to mute. Unfortunately, you can only mute an account from your primary account. There is no way to mute an account on a secondary account through TweetDeck, you have to sign in to it on Twitter.
If you want to block an account from your main account, you can do so from the account’s profile. You just need to click the triple-dot icon then select “Mute @<TwitterHandle>”.
Create a new list
Another potential way to change the accounts that you see tweets from is to create a new list that excludes accounts you no longer wish to see. You can do this by clicking the plus icon on the far-left to add a new column, then selecting “List”.
Here you can either choose to use an existing list if you already have one, or to create a new one.
Tip: You don’t need to be following an account to add it to a list.
Add accounts to a new list or choose an existing list, then click “Add column”.
