One of the biggest gripes I’ve always had with Twitter is having to view everyone else @replies to other people , the majority of these replies making absolutely no sense as you haven’t been tuned into the conversation.
Well today, after a simple tweet:
“I would love a Twitter view for all Tweets not starting with @”
Steve Reynolds, now my idol, replied:
@Zee turn off @replies in prefs?? none of my home feed tweets include @replies
I have used Twitter for over two years, I follow over 2000 people and am followed by over 3000. My point is, I’m no newbie, yet I definitely did not know about this feature and if I didn’t know, there’s bound to be many other people who didn’t too.
So how do you disable all @replies?
Make sure you are logged in to Twitter and click here. Simply change your @replies setting to “no @ replies” in the drop down menu.

Changing this options disabled @replies not only on Twitter.com but any 3rd party application you may be using too. Hallelujah.
