If you’re sick of politics, sport and general world news then you’re probably best off avoiding social media altogether.
But if you want to have your cake and eat it, there is another option to prevent unwanted items filling up your precious timeline on Twitter. Try Mute, a way to quickly mute 100 words from Twitter as chosen by the wisdom of people on the internet — aka crowdsourced.
Twitter has long supported muting words, but Mute makes it easy to really get into the feature. Its Mute.life website lists 100 keywords that have been added and then voted on by visitors to form a ranked list. By installing a bookmark in your (Google Chrome) browser, Mute can be used to automatically add those top 100 words into your muted word list for Twitter.
To get started, visit Mute.life and follow the instructions on the left-side of the screen. You can mute individual words, but the process behind that is pretty cumbersome since it involves copy-paste and manual entry. A better approach may be uploading the full 100 and then removing those you words that you don’t want to mute. Consider Mute the starting point.
I took Mute — which was created by nomadic developer Pieter Levels — for a spin and it worked as advised. Within a few minutes I had 100 muted words set up.
The only problem was the crowd — the main selling point — since many of the words I had muted weren’t topics that I wanted to banish from my timeline altogether.
There’s not going to be much left in my timeline if I mute all of these
That said, I’m not really the target audience here. I can’t remember muting any/many keywords over the years. But, if you’re someone who is looking to make use of Twitter’s mute feature, then this service gives you a jump start at doing that.
Levels said on Product Hunt that he is working to bring Mute to Facebook — that’s certainly a feature that would appeal to more people, so we’ll stay tuned on that.
Update: Facebook muting is now supported too — full details on the website here.
Salman Khan launches Bina Kak’s book Silent Sentinels Of Ranthambhore
Bollywood actor Salman Khan launched photographer Bina Kak’s book Silent Sentinels Of Ranthambhore on 13 December, terming it a “great book”.
“I think it is a great book because I have seen all the pictures much before they have released. All the pictures are really nice and beautiful,” he said in a media interaction.
Katrina Kaif, Salim Khan, Helen, Salman Khan, Baba Siddique, Priya Dutt and many more also attended the book launch.
Salman also said that every time, his movie is nearing release, Kak comes out with a book.
“I don’t understand whether we are here promoting Tiger Zinda Hai or her book.
“It had happened earlier, I was doing Sultan with Ali Abbas Zafar, we were planning on going to Ranthambhore, at that time Bina issued a book on a tiger named Sultan, but the plan didn’t work out. Now Tiger Zinda Hai is coming and her book is also releasing at the same time,” he said.
Salman also shared yet another funny story concerning Kak.
“Every time Bina Kak visits a jungle, my life turns into a mess. She sends me 50 photographs every day. So I am like this is good, incredible, I would send her long messages but, in time, it went from ‘very nice’ to ‘nice’ and then ‘hmm’ and eventually I would send her only ‘K’,” he added.
Salman Khan will be next seen in Tiger Zinda Hai opposite Katrina. The film, helmed by Zafar, releases on 22 December.

Bey Logan, consulting producer on Weinstein’s film Shanghai, accused of sexual misconduct
According to a report by Variety, a Hong Kong-based film executive Bey Logan, who has had professional and personal relationship with the disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, has been accused of sexual misconduct.
Hong Kong’s HK01, in one of its detailed investigative reports around the #MeToo campaign, had first brought the news of Logan’s misconduct when an unnamed actress alleged that Logan was an accomplice as well as a participant in many instances of sexual misconduct.
It was reported that Logan, who is also a martial arts expert, would harass actresses on and off the sets. In addition to that it is also alleged that he sent actresses to Harvey Weisnstein’s hotel room whenever he was in the city where acts of sexual misconduct were forced upon those actresses.
A total of seven women have reported against Logan to HK01. One of these actresses happen to be the Indonesian-Chinese actress Sable Yu who was the lead actress in the film Snowblade that was helmed by Logan himself. She said he had told her during the film’s production that sleeping with Weinstein would only open better opportunities. Also, she was subjected to sexual assault by him which ranged from walking naked to completely inappropriate moves.
However, Logan maintained that “many of the accusations made against me are either untrue or taken out of context. I categorically deny any criminal wrongdoing. I have never forced myself on a woman.” He further added that he will “now step back and take time to reflect on my behavior and the values which I should uphold.”
