Twitter Allows Users To Share Block Lists


In yet another move to assist users in dealing with harassment on Twitter, the company has announced that users will be able to share block lists via This latest move follows a series of changes to the popular social media site since last December in a bid to make it easier to deal with online harassment which Twitter was often criticized for not taking seriously enough.

Back in December, Twitter launched a blocked account settings page and prevented blocked accounts from viewing your profile, back in April they toughened policies surrounding prohibited content as well as giving their support team the ability to lock accounts. The newest feature allows you to export your block list and share it with other users who can then import it into their account allowing them to block multiple problem users at one time.

To export or import a list of blocked accounts, navigate to your blocked accounts settings on Click on the advanced options drop-down menu and select the action you want to take.

To download a list of your blocked accounts, select the export option and confirm the accounts you want to export.

The process sounds simple enough, and the ability to share your block lists will be rolling out to users over the next few weeks starting today.
