Hide replies v2 (retired)

Please note:

We graduated the Labs version of hide replies into Twitter API v2: Early Access and retired it in November 2020.

Learn more about the new hide replies endpoint, and review our migration resources to update to The New Twitter API.


Many people want the benefit of hiding replies to improve the quality of their conversations. Sometimes it’s difficult or overwhelming to do so without help, particularly when people receive a large number of replies, when those replies contain offensive or abusive language, or when they want to confine certain conversations to specific groups like close friends.

This endpoint gives you the ability to programmatically hide or unhide replies using criteria you define. Just like the functionality in the main Twitter experience, replies will be hidden from the main conversation but still visible on a separate page. You can use the endpoint to create apps to help people hide replies they don’t find valuable.

The hide replies endpoint uses OAuth 1.0a user context authentication. If successful, the endpoint hides a single Reply that was published in a Tweet conversation that was initiated by an authenticated user.
