Twitter is widely rolling out its “unmentioning” feature to all users, which allows you to remove yourself from a conversation that includes your Twitter handle. The platform first introduced the feature to a small group of users in April, but now it’s available to everyone.

You might want to use this feature yourself if you’re stuck in a toxic conversation or simply don’t want to receive notifications for a thread you’re a part of. Unmentioning untags your username, stops notifications for the thread, and also prevents anyone in the thread from tagging you again.

Sometimes you want to see yourself out.

It's fantastic, because I can untag myself from the myriad scam and spam tweets that advertise fake crypto currencies, fundraising scams, etc.

The way I see it, is actually opposite. People can stir trouble up, whether it be scams or politics. And then press the unmention button, and its.. gone. Works both way, if you think about it. TIme will tell if it gets used correctly, I guess.
