    Hey everyone! I'm new here. *waves*

    I did some searching but could not find anything, so I'm hoping someone here will know. I'm looking for a twitter application for Android that allows a mute function. I know Ubertwitter has it on Blackberry and Brizzly has it for the iPhone. I cannot find anything for android though. I have friends who I like and do not want to unfollow (nor do I want them to know I unfollowed them), but sometime these people go on rants and I would just like to be able to not have to see them when they decide to do it. :p Does anyone know of anything?

    I have been looking for the same thing for a while now. There are no twitter apps on Android that have the mute feature, and it's something that has been requested on practically all of them.

    The only real option I have found for this (and I have been begging for the same thing) is creating a list in twitter for those friend I want to hear from, and then creating a column in tweet deck that shows only that list. Not perfect, but it is the best option I have come up with.

    Twidroyd has had it for a while now... it works pretty well. You can specify how long you want them muted and everything.

    Yeah, Twidroid and Plume seem to be the only Twitter apps that have mute right now. But Twidroid's got a bug that won't return you to a previous timeline, but to the profile instead - that's really bugging me! LOL And Plume has been crashing on me ever since the name change. I've been using Tweetcaster lately, and it's pretty good. Handmark is saying an update for Tweetcaster is coming soon, and maybe it'll add the mute feature.

    Thanks everyone! I have been using Twidroyd and for me the mute function worked for a while, and then it appeared to stop working for me. Not too sure why. I'll have to try it out again, it's been a few weeks since I noticed it.

    Twicca is a Twitter app that's quickly becoming a favorite of mine, and it's got the mute feature. :)

    Plume has come a long way and it does have a lot of features..I use it as a backup now since I'm currently using Alphascope (socialscope)
