How to understand if you are blocked on Twitter?

You won't get a notification when someone blocks you. But when you get blocked, a series of events happen to your account, for example:

  • You will no longer see the tweets of the user who blocked you.
  •  You will not receive notifications about their profile.
  •  You will not see comments or replies written by the user.
  •  You can send them messages, but they won't receive messages from you.

If you suspect that someone has blocked you on Twitter, unfortunately, this application does not provide information about who did it and when. But you can find out who blocked you with a simple method and only through your mobile phone.

Ways to see who blocked you on twitter 

If you don't know exactly who has blocked you on Twitter, but you have a guess who might have blocked you, you can check out quickly by following these steps:

The first method:

  1. First, log in to the Twitter website or open the Twitter app on your mobile phone.
  2. In the search box, enter the user name of the desired person.
  3. If you see that person's profile, it means you are not blocked. But if you encounter the message "User not found", it means that you are blocked.

The second method:

  1. If you used to follow that person, but now you can't see the "follow" option, it means that you have been blocked.
  2. If you don't see that person's tweets in your feed, it means you are blocked.
  3. If you see that person in the comments or replies to their tweets, but your name is not next to them, it means that you have been blocked.

Of course, you should note that these signs are not definitive and there may be other reasons for not seeing a person's profile or tweets on Twitter. For example, that person may have made their account private or may have blocked you from following them. So to make sure that you are blocked, you can use another Twitter account to check that person's profile or tweets.
