Things to Remember

 

There are some things to keep in mind about replies and mentions before you take bold steps on the updated Twitter.

When you hide a reply to your tweet, the author of the reply will is not notified of your action. The hidden replies page is not going to show replies from a protected account. If a hidden reply is deleted by the author of the tweet, it will also no longer show up in the hidden replies page. If you are blocked or muted by the account who’s reply you hid then you will be unable to view or unhide that reply.

When viewed from Home timeline only when another account replies to it (which can be done from the hidden reply page), a hidden reply will be replaced by a notice stating the Tweet is unavailable. However, if a hidden reply is not replied to by anyone else, it will is not going to be replaced by a notice in Home timeline. It should be noted that this feature is available via Twitter for iOS, Twitter for Android, and twitter.com and unavailable on Tweetdeck.
