2. Click Green Retweet icon which turns to grey color which means his retweets won’t appear in your timeline.

3. To enable retweets  back again, click greyed retweet icon which turns to green color and his retweets will appear in your timeline.

Mind you can’t turn off retweets from users you are following in your timeline, instead you can unfollow those guys.

Last line contradicts the whole blog post. Can you, or can you not turn off retweets from a user you are following?
