How to Know if Someone Blocked You on Twitter?

How can I understand if someone has blocked me on Twitter? Blocking someone on Twitter makes the blocked account unable to see your tweets, message you, or follow you. If you cannot see the users’ tweets, if you cannot message to this user or if you cannot follow this user anymore, this means that this Twitter user has blocked you. In addition, it means that you cannot do all these things until this user unblocks you. This Twitter user that has blocked you will also not be able to see your account. He or she will not be able to message you, see your tweets or follow you.
What Happens When You Block a Twitter Account
Blocking someone doesn’t just mean they can no longer see your posts, it also means that you won’t be able to follow them anymore.
If the person is following you before being blocked, he or she will automatically unfollow and stop seeing any of your future content if they are still on this list.
I understand blocking someone might not always seem like a good idea.

See How Many Users Have Blocked You on Twitter?
Twitter, as we’ve mentioned is a pretty subtle app.

To find out the statistic – which can be really helpful for anyone who wants more followers or likes – all they need to do is log in through Twitter!
Does Twitter Notify You When Somebody Blocks You?
Twitter won't send you a notification if someone blocks you. The only way you can tell you've been blocked is to visit the other user's profile and see the Twitter block message.
If you suspect you were blocked by someone, it's up to you to investigate and confirm it. If you don't even realize that a particular user is missing from your timeline, you might never even know you've been blocked.
Additionally, tweets from a user that you blocked are removed from your timeline if you were previously following them. Twitter also automatically removes the user you blocked from your followers list. Likewise, your tweets no longer show up in a blocked user's timeline if they previously followed you.
Can You See a List of Who Blocked You on Twitter?

Can I See A List of Everyone I Have Blocked?

- Click your profile pick in the top-right corner

Is There a Way to Prevent Someone From Finding Out Youve Blocked Them?
There’s no way to keep a user from finding out you’ve blocked them. If you block someone and they visit your profile or try to follow you again, they will a message telling them they’re blocked. But, you can make your Twitter account private. That way, you can control who follows you and you can avoid blocking people in the first place.
Frequently Asked Questions
Social media is great for many things. But it’s also important to protect your peace. If you have more questions about blocking Twitter users, keep reading.
I’ve blocked a user who’s harassing me, but they created a new account. What can I do?
It’s no secret that Twitter can be a toxic online environment. Of course, you can block people, but that won’t stop them from making a new account and harassing you again. If this has happened to you, it’s a good idea to report the account. Although this isn’t an immediate solution, the Twitter support team can permanently ban the user or even an IP Ban.
When a user is reported for violating Twitter’s strict Community Guidelines, the support team will review their account. If the offense is harsh enough, an IP Ban is implemented. Not only does this ban the users’ account, but it also helps to ensure the offender does not make another account.
While there are workarounds to this (meaning the user may find a way to make another account), it isn’t likely you’ll have an issue with them in the future.
How do I report a Twitter account?
If the offense goes beyond a simple nuisance and into a dangerous or threatening territory, you can report the account to Twitter’s support staff.
Following the same instructions we’ve shown above, choose the option to ‘Report’ the user rather than the Block option. Fill out the forms to submit the report. You will receive a confirmation message that the report was received, but you won’t necessarily know the outcome.
It’s also a good idea to take screenshots of any harmful messages or Tweets on the users’ profile. If the other user decides to delete messages or their account to avoid retribution, you can file a report with screenshots on the Twitter Support website.
How will I know if someone blocked me on Twitter?
Due to the nature of blocking, you won’t receive any notifications or alerts that another user took the action to hide your Tweets. However, Twitter does make it especially easy to find out if you’re blocked. All you need to do is use the search bar to locate the users’ profile. A message will appear stating the account owner blocked you.
If you see this message, there is no question; you’ve most certainly been blocked.
Can a blocked user still see my DMs?
Yes. Blocking users on Twitter only means you will no longer have the ability to communicate with one another. It does not, however, mean that past conversations will be blocked.
Managing Twitter users is simple, and blocking or muting takes just a moment to provide immediate relief. Given how annoying some people can be on the platform, this is truly one of the bonuses of an easy-to-use social media platform like Twitter!
