Everyone has a whole list of people who they do not wish to hear from, whether by telephone, on Facebook, or on Twitter. Many people with active Twitter accounts have needed to block other Twitter users from posting responses to what they share because the people wrote objectionable things.
But why would people feel need to share their block lists on Twitter with one another, you might ask? Good question!
In a blog post, Twitter said, “You can now export and share your block lists with people in your community facing similar issues or import another user’s list into your own account and block multiple accounts all at once, instead of blocking them individually. We also hope these advanced blocking tools will prove useful to the developer community to further improve users’ experience.”
Twitter is also working on additional user controls and we look forward to sharing more information about those in the near future.
