HOUSTON, TX -We all know at least one person who doesn’t know when to stop talking (usually about a topic you could care less about).

Those problems are about to become a thing of the past, at least for Twitter users, because the company’s offering a way to silence people politely.

Twitter’s testing a “mute button” that would allow users to silence people they’re following, without ‘unfollowing’ them all together.

That way, you’re still able to get direct messages and notifications but those useless inspirational quotes and food pictures won’t pop up on your feed every 15 seconds.

The whole things still in testing, so who knows when it will be available to the masses? However, the sound of a silent Twitter feed is like music to our ears.
