Twitter is testing a new feature that lets you mute notifications for a certain amount of time. This setting will be independent of controlling system-level Twitter notifications on iPhone and iPad.

This discovery was first made by Jane Manchun Wong, who regularly discovers unreleased features in popular social media applications. The feature tested by Twitter is labeled "Snooze" and allows you to set messages for 1 hour, 3 hours or 12 hours.
Essentially, you will be able to tap a clock icon in the Notifications tab to see the Snooze time options. This will override any notification settings you have set at the Twitter system level.
If you enable Snooze in the Twitter app, you will not receive push notifications for the selected time period. Notifications will continue to accumulate in the Notifications tab of the Twitter app, so you can catch up when you see fit.
It is unclear at this time when Twitter can make this feature public. The feature comes as Twitter and other social media companies are working to expand their "digital wellness" tools for users. Of course, as with any feature that is not released, there is always a chance that Snooze will not be released to the public.
