How to remove any mention of Wordle from your Twitter feed
Muting words on Twitter once again comes in clutch.
If you are an avid Twitter user, you’ve almost certainly come across the dreaded “Wordle” tweets. I don’t know what they are referencing, but apparently, it is a web-based game you can play for free. I’m glad others are enjoying it, but I’m simply not interested.
I’m certainly not alone in this (shoutout to Chris Breen for the idea), so if you are sick of seeing these tweets, you thankfully have options. Muting words on Twitter is a great way to keep your feed clean of spoilers and people you would rather not think about, so it’s the perfect option in this instance.
Follow along below and free yourself from the grasp of Wordle.
