Twitter, earlier this year, started testing a feature that enables users to excuse themselves from a conversation that they don’t want to be a part of by unmentioning them from a Twitter thread.

As of now, users get a total of six options when they tap on three dots next to a tweet in which they have been tagged in. These options let users follow another user in the tweet if they haven’t been following them before, add or remove the person from an existing list or a new list, mute a person mentioned in the Twitter thread, hide a specific reply, block a person mentioned in the list and report the mentioned tweet. Now, the company is adding a seventh option to the mix — Leave this conversation.

Tapping on this option, that is, Leave this conversation, enables users to excuse themselves from a conversation that they don’t want to be a part of.

If you are new to this feature, here is a step-by-step guide that will help you unmention yourself from a thread on Twitter.

How to unmention yourself from a Twitter thread

Step 1: Open the Twitter thread that you don’t want to be a part of.
Step 2: Go to the tweet in the thread that you are mentioned in.
Step 3: Tap on ‘Leave This Conversation’ option.
Step 4: Then confirm your selection by tapping on the Leave option again.

It is worth mentioning that once you leave a conversation, Twitter will untag your username from the original tweet and all replies. It will also prevent people from mentioning you in the same conversation again. Additionally, you will also not get any notifications regarding the Twitter thread at all.
