Twitter has created a new tool that suggests people stop following on their social network.
The feature is designed to help users remove accounts from their timeline that they rarely interact with, creating a "more relevant" experience, according to Twitter.
It was tested by the social media giant last week in a small group of users.
The test lasted only a few days, and now it's over, confirmed Twitter.
The & # 39; list without tracking & # 39; is the latest in a series of changes made by Twitter to improve the user experience with the social network, which has seen the company deploy new features designed to combat abuse and stop the spread of false accounts.

"We know that people want a relevant Twitter timeline," the company said in a statement.
"One way to do this is to stop following people with whom they do not interact regularly.
"We conducted an incredibly limited test of superficial accounts that people did not interact with to see if they would like to stop following them."
During the last week's little test, the Stop following tool appeared on the users' home page along with a button labeled "control what's happening here."
A caption said: "You can improve your timeline by reviewing some accounts that you may not need to follow."
By touching the button, users came to a list of accounts with which they rarely interacted.
The Stop following tool was offered to users on its home screen with a button next to the phrase "control what is happening here".
Then, users can select the accounts they would like to stop following, if any.
Only tweets from the accounts that users follow will appear on your timeline.
Twitter tracks user activity through the social network, and can determine which accounts users rarely retweet, like, or share with others.
It is unclear if Twitter will launch the feature to users around the world.
The tool can generate criticism since Twitter is involved in a controversy over its handling of the right content.
President Donald Trump accused the platform in July of intentionally hiding prominent conservative accounts within its search results.

The tweet came after a story in Vice magazine said prominent Republicans such as Republican Party President Ronna McDaniel were not showing up in one aspect of the Twitter search function.
Although the accounts appeared during a general search, they were not automatically filled in a drop-down bar when writing the name.
In his tweet, Trump accused Twitter of "forbidding shadows". or limit the visibility of some Republicans and said it was "discriminatory and illegal".
Twitter denied having participated in the practice, adding that the missing search results were the result of an error that the company was solving.
