It’s mid-August and insufferably hot. What better way to deal with the heat than to disconnect from everything around you and recharge your batteries before September starts? If you’re one of those people who can’t spend even a half hour without looking at your phone and seeing notifications from your social networks, we’ve got the perfect tool to help you forget about Twitter.
It’s ok if you want to disconnect, but but you don’t want to neglect your Twitter profile or miss out on all the news. For this, you’ve got Mute. This extension lets you mute any words currently trending on the social network.
Unlike the official Mute feature on Twitter, Mute shows you the 100 most used words on Twitter, so you can mute everything going viral and anything the world is talking about right now. The ranking is based on Twitter user voting.
Enabling it is as easy as going to Mute and typing in your Twitter account. There, you’ll see a list of the most used words on Twitter at the time (not hashtags, just words). From there, you decide if you want to know about it, or not. Select the words that you want to block and all the tweets that have that keyword or come from that user will be automatically muted. Brilliant, right?
Now you can have a mojito on the beach without worrying about what the president has said, who won the last football match, or encountering the same arguments as always. Get ready to enjoy your break!
