RELATED: How to send disappearing tweets with fleets on Twitter
To do this, open Twitter on your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Scroll to the top of the Home tab to see the fleets of those you’re following.
You can only mute a fleet for someone who recently posted one. So you can only hide Fleets from every avatar balloon in the thumbnail row at the top of your Twitter feed.
To mute a fleet, tap and hold a profile’s fleet balloon to reveal its hidden settings. Tap “Mute @ (Twitter account)”, where “Twitter account” is the person’s Twitter handle.
Tap “Mute Fleets” to hide this account’s existing and future fleets, or “Mute Fleets and Tweets” to hide that person’s tweets as well.
Twitter will mute Fleets from this profile indefinitely and they will no longer appear in your feed. The same as when you mute tweets, Twitter won’t notify anyone when you mute their fleet.
If you want to unmute someone, go to their Twitter profile page and tap “Unmute” next to the message “You have muted Fleets from this account”.
Twitter won’t delete the row reserved for Fleets, even if you mute them from all the accounts you follow, so it will unfortunately continue to take up space in your feed.
Then learn how to ignore someone’s stories and posts on Instagram without unfollowing them.
