Are Twitter chats/parties or certain event hashtags clogging your feed? Instead of unfollowing the user just block their hashtag so you can still get their updates without inundating your newsfeed. Unfortunately, Twitter.com does not allow users to block hashtags but Tweetdeck does. And it takes about 20 seconds to block a hashtag. Just go to SETTINGS in Tweetdeck, choose MUTE, choose “TEXT CONTENT” and in the “USING” box type in the hashtag (e.g. #TwitterChat) you want to block. Then Voilà! It’s that simple.
