How to Block or Unblock Someone on Twitter


Even though President Trump cannot block users on Twitter, that does not mean that you cannot do so. Twitter may be a wonderful platform for conversation, but sometimes heated disagreements can devolve into endless harassment of other users. The ability to block content is quite helpful in situations like this.

Blocking a user means that you do not want that user to be able to communicate with you, follow you on Twitter, or view your tweets. However, if you later change your mind, unblocking someone is just as simple as blocking them.

5. An option will come in a pop-up window and ask you if you are confident that you want to block the user.

If you block another user on Twitter, they will no longer be able to view your profile or tweets, they will not be able to send you direct messages, and they will not be able to follow you. To block any future interaction with the user, select the “Block” button from the toolbar.

6. Navigate to the user’s profile page on Twitter, move your mouse pointer to the area where it says “Blocked,” and then click the “Unblock” button. This will make it possible for you to follow their account, and it will also make it possible for you to follow your own account.
