1. I'm confident in saying that there is no way (yet) to suppress tweets.

2. What tweets are displayed is based on
a) the tweet must be geocoded (tweets have the option of including a location), AND
b) the tweet uses some keyword

So if I send a tweet that is geocoded with words like "detour", or "traffic" or "accident" it will appear on the screen of Wazers in the area of the geo-location. It works like a chit-chat, so it doesn't pop up unless I am stationary.

Waze will also include all tweets from a tweeting source of traffic info, but pretty much only if they are geocoded or can be tied to a very small road segment.

Suppress Tweets?

Postby BrutusNL » Tue Sep 28, 2010 2:34 pm

In the last couple of weeks I haven't had one single interesting Tweet in Waze. The attached example shows a Tweet of some courier who is begging for a new ride. I don't want to see these. Is there any way to suppress the Tweets from popping up in Waze?Image

Sorry to slightly drag your thread off-course, but how does this work in the first place?

I have managed to tweet reports onto my group twitter feeds from members, but I've never seen what looks like a twitter tweet displayed on the Waze client. Some of my group members have asked for this as I retweet information for another traffic source to users too.
