Popular Social Media reverse engineering specialist Jane Manchun Wong first revealed this feature back in February this year. See for yourself what she tweeted that time.

As you can see in the screenshot there is a Hide Tweet option present which if rightnow you check in your app you won’t find it. You can check it by clicking to the dropdown icon present right next to a tweet.

Now, Techcrunch reported that today Twitter release a documentation in which they mention to roll out this feature in June. However, Twitter says this feature is totally experimental for now.
