Here's how to tell if someone is muting your Tweets

We know - you're a mature adult. A secure, fully functioning member of society who has outgrown the playground concerns of "who likes you".

You have friends you hold dearly, relatives you're happy to sit in a room with on infrequent occasions throughout the year. You probably don't care if someone has muted your Tweets.

Yet here you are. So let's cut to the chase.

Foremost, you're only going to be able to use this workaround on one Twitter user at a time, so best have a hunch on who you think has blocked you.

You're going to need to have a Tweetdeck account - an official tool for managing multiple Twitter accounts. 

The exploit works by adding a 'Home' column for the account you believe has muted you:

You're going to need to type in the Twitter address of the suspected muter - which will then add a column on Tweetdeck that displays their Tweeter feed as they see it:

If you then send a test Tweet from the account you suspect they have informally silenced, you'll be able to tell if they've muted you if it doesn't appear in their Home column.

And there you have it. Quite what you do with this information once you've obtained it is beyond us. Confront them awkwardly over coffee? "Why did you mute me?! Was it the joke about vegans? You need to get a grip!"

Don't even think about trying it on your ex...

N.B. If you want to mute people without them discovering your ploy with the above steps, you can use the mute function built into Tweetdeck. It functions in a different manner to the mute of the standard Twitter browser.
