Delete or hide messages

Bug Description

There should be a way to delete or hide unwanted messages.

Spam messages are often sent as @mentions causing them to appear in a Replies column in Gwibber.
Even after blocking the user, the messages will still appear, because they have already been downloaded.

It would help to avoid those annoying messages if these were some way they could be hidden or deleted.

This bug is for hiding or deleting specific, individual messages. #269673 is for hiding all current messages.

If there were a way to hide individual messages, then it could probably be extended to hide them all.

I tried gwibber with MyAccountA. Recent tweets were downloaded. I said, "cool". But I want to just use gwibber with MyAccountB & MyAccountC. I want to remove tweets from MyAccountA from local machine.

I figured deleting MyAccountA from Edit->Accounts then Gwibber->Refresh would actually refresh the list so the correct accounts were reflected in the list of tweets displayed.

Didn't happen. Would love to see that happen.

And if you follow someone and you stop follow, then tweets stay in gwibber, but twitter web doesn't show them

Would be nice I could right click on an users avatar and select 'add user to blacklist'. Than ask for how long: a day, week or for ever.

This feature would improve the utility of Gwibber a lot.
