Mute, block, or report someone on Twitter

Muting a Twitter user (available in the web version of Hootsuite only) is a simple way to hide their tweets from your streams without unfollowing them. Muted users won’t know you’ve muted them. You can also block users, which prevents them from following, viewing, and interacting with your account, removes their tweets from your streams, and prevents you from following them. Finally, you can report a Twitter account to Twitter if you think it’s in violation of Twitter’s rules or terms of service. Reporting doesn’t remove the account’s tweets from your streams.
