TwitterSnooze - Take a Break
If you're one of those people who uses Twitter but finds yourself inundated with messages and just can't pull yourself away, TwitterSnooze is for you. The app allows you to pause incoming tweets from specified users for as long as you like. The advantage is that you can keep from being constantly bombarded with an over-eager friend. The disadvantage is that the silenced one will know you're blocking them - not right away, but when you stop the snoozing, they will be notified that they were paused. Not sure why that feature is included, maybe as a way to subtly tell someone to give it a rest. If you're going to tell someone that they're just too talkative, perhaps its best to remove them all together. Otherwise, it's kind of like taking "time off" from a relationship that really just needs to end.
