How to Block Someone on Twitter (PC, Android, and iPhone)?

In this post, we’ll see how to block someone on Twitter web version (PC) and Twitter app (Android and iPhone).

Let’s get started.

What will happen when you block someone on Twitter?

  • You and the profile you block will get unfollowed automatically if both of you follow each other. The same is the case even if a follow is from one side.
  • They can’t follow you, and you can’t follow them.
  • They can’t DM (Direct Message) you.
  • They can’t see your tweets, followers, following, likes, moments, and lists when logged into Twitter.
  • The profile you block can still see your profile and tweets when they are not signed in.
  • They can’t add you to the lists.
  • They can’t mention you.
  • They can’t tag you in the photo.
  • They can’t find your tweets by searching when signed into Twitter. The same is the case for you too.
  • They can’t view your tweets on their timeline. The same is the case for you too.
  • The profile you block doesn’t get notified when you block them. However, they can know that you block them when they visit your profile.
