Twitter has finally starting rolling out the Hide Replies feature. The feature was in beta since March this year. The feature would let users hide replies to their tweet.
We’re testing a feature to hide replies from conversations. This experience will be available for everyone around the world, but at this time, only people in Canada can hide replies to their Tweets.
We want to know what you think. Please Tweet us your feedback and questions! https://t.co/H7iMtEhCUP

With the feature enabled, the person who started a conversation could choose to hide replies to their tweets. The Hide Replies feature is viewable by others through a menu option.
It is present at the top-right corner of the tweet within the arrow icon. Click on it and select “Hide replies” option will hide the selected replies. The feature will not delete the reply but they are just placed behind an icon. If people want to see the hidden replies, they can press the icon.
There is also appears to be an option to view all tweets you’ve hidden in the past and manually unhide them if you want to reopen replies at some point in the future.
Currently, the feature is available to the users in Canada but Twitter will soon roll out the feature globally.
