Hi,
I think so, interrupt because you want to get a word in edgeways. I'm not a native speaker so let's see what they tell you.
Bye.

Hi timiii,

Your speculation is right enough.

butt in = Interfere, interrupt, intrude. For example, Mom is always butting in on our conversations, or It's against the law for employers to butt in on personal matters. This term alludes to the thrusting of an animal with its horns.

Regards.

V.
