Twitter Allows to Share Block Lists

Twitter announced a new feature for Twitter users to better manage unwanted communication on Twitter e.g.: harassment and trolling.

Twitter has been criticized since a while for the poor handling of harassment and trolling on the social media service. Headlines of Twitter not taking rape threats seriously have hurt the company image. Twitter has new policies in place to tackle the issues and now they released a new feature to better help users protect themselves against unwanted Tweets.

The new feature is making blocking multiple accounts easy, fast and community driven.

Twitter's Xiaoyun Zhang: "Mute and block are tools to help you control your Twitter experience. While many users find them useful, we also recognize that some users — those who experience high volumes of unwanted interactions on Twitter — need more sophisticated tools."

Users can now export and share your block lists with people in your community facing similar issues or import another user’s list into their own account and block multiple accounts all at once, instead of blocking them individually. Twitter hopes these advanced blocking tools will prove useful to the developer community to further improve users’ experience.

Twitter launched in December the blocked accounts settings page and tightened the rules so accounts you’ve blocked can’t view your profile. In April, Twitter announced additional policy and enforcement changes. This feature is yet another step towards making Twitter safer for everyone and will be available to all Twitter users over the coming weeks.
