SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Twitter on Monday began letting users 'mute' posts from people they are not interested in hearing from at the popular one-to-many messaging service.

The new Mute feature was expected to be rolled out to all Twitter accounts in coming weeks.

"You can now mute users you'd like to hear from less," Twitter product manager Paul Rosania said in a blog post.

"The muted user will not know that you've muted them, and of course you can unmute at any time."
