How Twitter Unmentioning Works

Once you unmention yourself, here’s what happens:

  • Untag your username: Your username will just remain as a text on the tweet, but you won’t be bothered by the conversation.

  • Stop notifications: You won’t get the notifications for the conversation but if you want, you can still read the conversation.
