There are two kinds of people in this world.
One kind of person can’t wait for the birth of a young prince or princess who they will likely never meet, who will live a life of staggering privilege. The other can’t wait to ignore the birth of a young prince or princess who they will likely never meet, who will live a life of staggering privilege.
If you’re the latter, you can hide the mentions of the royal baby from your Twitter feed. Here’s how to do it on Tweetdeck.
Step 1. Pick the column that you want to filter, then click this arrow.
Step 2. Select the arrow in the “Content” field.
Step 3. In the “Excluding” tab, type the words or terms that you’d like to filter, in this case it’s “royalbaby”. In the “Including” tab, include retweets.
To be extra safe, include variations of royal baby in the “Excluding” box — just separate your terms with commas. Other terms to exclude: royal, “royal baby”, LindoWing.
Step 4. Select the big arrow again, to collapse the filtering menu.
Step 5. You’ll know that the filter has been applied when this bar appears at the top of your column.
