How to Block Someone on Twitter

In this post, we’ll see how to block someone on Twitter. Let’s get started.

What Will Happen When You Block Someone On Twitter?

Here are the things that will happen:

  • 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 blocked profile can still see your profile and tweets when they are not logged 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 logged into Twitter. The same is the case for you too.
  • They can’t see 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 they are blocked by you when they visit your profile.

Well, without any delay, let’s see the steps.
