Twitter gives users more control by restricting mentions of others on the site with a simple change.
Twitter is developing a new feature that allows users to control who can mention them on the platform using a toggle switch.
Users can remove the feature altogether for tagging, or limit tagging to only accounts they follow.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong posted an image of the featured App that was tested to give users more control over their tweets.
Disabling the “Allow others to mention you” button will restrict any mentions, such as the recently launched feature that allows users to leave chats. Restricting mentions can mean that other users can still mention your account but will not associate or notify the user’s account.

The option also allows users to limit mentions to only people they follow. The app recently rolled out a suite of audience controls for users, such as restricted replies, App circles for private group chats, a safety mode to automatically block spam and abusive replies, and communities for closed discussions.
Twitter is trying to reduce the negative impact of social networks, especially as netizens denounce them and prevent them from sharing their opinions. Users must be allowed to dictate their user experience on social sites using the tools provided.
