The official handle of the micro-blogging site tweeted: “Reminder that you can mute words,” along with a list of words that people can mute.

Explaining how it works, the social media platform said one could simply mute each words and determine the duration for which they do not wish to see any tweets or contents mentioning it to cleanse their timelines.

Some of the suggestions included phrases like — “valentine’s day”, “date night”, “gf bf” among others.
