How to Block Someone on Twitter

If you want to block any Twitter user for some reason, then you can do it with the Twitter’s inbuilt option.

This task is simple, and you can do it within a minute. In this post, we will see the steps to do this task on both the Twitter and Twitter app.

However, before we proceed to the steps, it is good to know what will happen when you block someone on Twitter.

What Will Happen When You Block Someone On Twitter?

Here are the things that will happen:

You and the person(s) 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 cannot follow you, and you cannot follow them.

They cannot DM(Direct Message) you.

They cannot see your tweets, followers, following, likes, moments and lists when logged into twitter.

The blocked person(s) can still see your profile and tweets when they are not logged in.

They cannot add you to the lists.

They cannot mention you.

They cannot tag you in the photo.

They cannot find your tweets by searching when logged into twitter. The same is the case for you too.

They cannot see your tweets on their timeline. The same is the case for you too.

The person you block does not get notified when you block them. However, they can know that they are blocked by you when they visit your profile.

Well, now we know what happens when we “Block” someone. Let’s go ahead with the process.
