twitter block

Twitter said late Thursday that it had reversed course after an intense public outcry and will restore a feature that allows users to “block” unwanted followers.

The company was responding to a virtual revolt led by users who had experienced harassment on the popular social media network.

The offending change removed the ability of individuals to block unwanted followers and hide tweets from that user. Instead, the new rules rendered any blocked account invisible to the user — similar in function to a “mute” button.

The new policy created the possibility that an abusive user would be able to continue their behavior — but the target would be unaware.
