Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 4, Jul 22) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
Twitter has announced that they are rolling out the ‘unmentioning’ feature to all users, on all devices,globally. This is a feature that lets you remove yourself from a conversation, once you are not comfortable with the way things are going. Especially on a platform like Twitter, where things can get a little uncomfortable, once more people get involved, and the conversation starts taking a different direction,you don’t want to be part of that anymore. As of now, there was no option for you to remove yourself from a particular thread of conversation. But now with this feature, which has been testing for a while, you can actually do that. You can remove yourself from the thread. And once you select the unmention feature,you will be able to do three things: your username will be untapped from the original tweet and replies,users won’t be able to mention you again, you will no longer be notified about updates to the exchange.Quite useful.
