When I looked at my tweets, I found a reply like advertising.
Then tap the drop-down icon of the advertising reply ……
Tap 'Hide reply'.
Then, the advertisement reply that was displayed earlier was hidden.
Replies are only hidden, not deleted. Tap the button at the bottom right of the tweet ...
It is possible to see hidden replies. Not only the person who made the original tweet, but also all users can see the tweet hidden by the same operation.
If you make a mistake and hide it, or if you want to cancel it, but you want to cancel it, tap the drop-down icon for the tweet you have hidden.
Tap “Unhide reply” to restore.
Twitter has been testing this feature in Canada for some time, but with this announcement, users in Japan and the United States can now use this feature.

In the test, the function to hide the reply was used exclusively to hide 'irrelevant, aggressive or meaningless reply'. As a result, we ’ve found that the Hidden feature, like the Keyword Mute feature, helps manage a series of conversations that start with tweets.
Also, although the other party can tell that it has been hidden, about 27% of those who have hidden tweets responded that they “rethink how to interact with the other party” Not only did it make replies that I didn't want to see, but it also helped me constructive conversations.

You ’ll also be asked if you want to block the other party ’s account. In addition to making it easier to prevent troubles from this, it seems that there is also an aim to avoid misunderstanding by emphasizing the difference from block, which is a clear rejection.
In addition to the app, you can use the hidden function on Twitter for PC as well.
It is also possible for users other than Japan, the United States, and Canada to see replies hidden from the drop-down icon.
