Twitter explains new blocking policy Posted on Thursday, December 12th, 2013 at 4:08 pm. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple I’ve seen people posting on both sides of this issue tonight. Jack They’ve basically turned “block” into “ignore”.I think Twitter should learn from Facebook’s privacy mistakes. Controls should be fine-grained and the meaning behind them should change as little as possible. Wayne Williams So blocked does not mean invisible. Oh, I see. No wait, I don’t see because I can’t. I’m blocked. No, oh what the hell ever.
