Esc7: Following someone on twitter allows you to send direct messages back and forth
Esc7: A close friend who tweets lots of advice and tips in their profession which is useless to you, for example. You get the benefits of the following relation without being forced to merge their tweets into your primary feed.
rocky_howard: It's actually one of the most requested features and one of the main reasons people use third party clients. Twitter just wants to attract more and more people to their official apps.And besides the obvious passive-aggressive bullshiat of following someone for emotional/professional/etc reasons, yet muting their tweets because they're dumber than a bag o'tools, mute actually has legit uses.At least when implemented by Tweebot: You can temporary mute someone for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week or 1 month (as opposed to forever). Makes sense when they're at a convention you don't care about or are following a sports event you give two shiats about. Also muting hashtags so you don't get spoilers from shows or something. Or muting random words/sentences so you don't get dumb stuff like "obamacare" in your timeline. It's pretty useful.
