Mute, block, or report someone on Twitter

With the web version of Hootsuite, you can mute other Twitter users to hide their tweets from your streams without unfollowing them. Muted users will not know you have muted them. You can unmute someone using Twitter.

In both the web version of Hootsuite and the Hootsuite mobile app, you can also block and report users. Blocking prevents users from following, viewing, and interacting with your account, removes their tweets from your streams, and prevents you from following them. You can report a Twitter account to Twitter if you think they are in violation of Twitter’s rules or terms of service. This does not remove their tweets from your streams.
