Twitter Reverting The Changes To Block Functionality

Wow, it didn't take long for Twitter to buckle under pressure and revert its blocking policy back to normal. Less than a day has to be some kind of record. wink

In reverting this change to the block function, users will once again be able to tell that they’ve been blocked. We believe this is not ideal, largely due to the retaliation against blocking users by blocked users (and sometimes their friends) that often occurs. Some users worry just as much about post-blocking retaliation as they do about pre-blocking abuse. Moving forward, we will continue to explore features designed to protect users from abuse and prevent retaliation.
