Well, getting stuck is arguably one of the most frustrating things in the world. And it’s even more frustrating if it also happens on an engaging platform like Twitter. Like all the other major social media sites, blocking Twitter is a sneaky business. It also makes it all the more difficult to know when this is happening. So to try to help you. Today we will show you the ways to check if someone has blocked you on the platform. In this article, we’re going to talk about How to See Who’s Blocked You on Twitter. Let’s get started!
What is Twitter blocking used for?
Well, blocking works a little differently on Twitter than it does on other platforms. On Facebook, blocking will also prevent you from mentioning the person anywhere on the platform. Twitter, on the other hand, will basically let you tweet with them, but won’t tell the person that there are tweets waiting for them, too. You would of course not be able to see their Tweets as well. However, you might participate in conversations where both of you are mentioned. Again, neither of you would be able to see the other’s responses as well.
Their tweets won’t really show up under a particular hashtag, even if they use it extensively. They won’t really see the retweets of your tweets. And finally, you won’t be able to send yourself direct messages through Twitter. To sum up, Twitter would simply erase your existence from their life. This ensures that they don’t come across any of your activities on Twitter.
Will you be notified when someone blocks you on Twitter?
As already discussed, blocking on Twitter is a sneaky super-duper operation, where stealth is of the utmost importance. So anytime a user wants to take a little break from your Twitter shenanigans by blocking you out, Twitter won’t make a noise – in fact, will let you know. Unless you conduct a thorough investigation, you will have no way of knowing when a user is blocking you on the platform as well.
If you think you are unusually seeing less of one account lately or that they are not responding to your tweets. And you could make the bold choice to visit their profile and see if they’ve actually blocked you. If they did, you’ll see a message saying that this user has blocked you on Twitter.
See how many users have blocked you on Twitter?
Twitter, as we mentioned, is a really subtle application. It also won’t tell you when a user has blocked you, or how many users have chosen to remove you from their feed. Capitalizing on the situation, a service called Blolook has become a must-have and will also tell you exactly how many users have blocked you on the platform.
To find out the statistics, just just go to the site then log in with your Twitter account.
After authorization, the website will actually tell you how many users have blocked you on the next screen.
Is there a way to get a list of people who have blocked you?
As low-key as the platform is, Twitter hasn’t yet provided us with a tool that would give us a handy list of people who’ve blocked us. Lots of websites claim to do the job, of course, however, most of them are scams and charge you a premium. But, if you’re willing enough, there is a workaround that will tell you if mutual contact has blocked you on Twitter.
The people who block you on Twitter are unlikely to be random. They are required to have mutual accounts with you. So first you will have to find a user who could follow the alleged blocker. Head over to their Twitter profile and hit “Follow” to get the list of people they are following.
- Count on the number of people they follow. It may take a while for you to reach the bottom of the screen.
- When you do this, right-click on the page to save it as a “complete web page”.
- Now just open the HTML file in Notepad and search for the keyword: “blocks you”. If you get any result, search for the Twitter username a few lines above the found text – “blocks you”.
- The username you get blocks you on Twitter as well. You will have to repeat this step for any accounts that are actually suspicious.
