Don’t you already know how much negativity social media sites like Twitter can spread? One of the most potent social media networks in the world is reportedly Twitter. However, it is also true that enormous power comes with great responsibility. But doesn’t the abuse of power simply fall to one’s feet on its own? However, you may quickly get rid of any such Twitter annoyances that have been bothering you recently. You may manage your interactions with other accounts on Twitter by using the block and mute tools. The steps to block, unblock, or mute someone on Twitter are outlined below with visual instructions to help you through the procedure.
When you block someone on Twitter, you prevent them from following you, messaging you, viewing your Tweets, or tagging you in pictures. You also stop receiving their alerts. The mute option is for you if all you want to do is get rid of their tweets from your timeline without entirely blocking them. The take a break option on Facebook serves the same purpose as the mute option on Twitter. Additionally, Twitter gives you the option to mute any words or notifications that you don’t want to appear in your timeline.
One thing to keep in mind, though, is that blocking a user on Twitter whose account you are already following will result in both of you unfollowing that account. Before blocking someone on Twitter, it’s important to keep in mind that any Tweets you’ve made about them specifically will be available for them to view and attach during the reporting process if they decide to report your account. Therefore, it is crucial to fully understand how these tools operate before employing them.
How to Block or Mute Someone on Twitter
There are two ways to block or mute a user on Twitter.
Step 1: Launch the Twitter app on your smartphone, go to the person’s profile, and select the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen (as shown below).
Step 2: Select the Block or Mute option according to your needs, confirm your selection, and you’re done! That person’s Twitter account will be blocked or muted appropriately.

Instead of accessing their profile, you may also simply click on the three dots in the upper right corner of that person’s tweet in your timeline and then choose the Block or Mute option as needed. Another thing to keep in mind is that, after someone has been blocked on Twitter, you won’t be able to find their account using the search box. So, if you choose to unblock them, you would have to do so from your profile’s Settings section.
How to Unblock or Unmute Someone on Twitter
Step 1: As seen below in the highlighted area, click the Profile button in the top left corner of the Twitter interface.
