. 8 min read

Curiosity often strikes when we notice a sudden lack of engagement or interaction from certain Twitter accounts we once connected with. As we delve deeper into the mystery, one possibility that arises is whether someone has intentionally blocked us on Twitter. Discovering who has blocked us on Twitter can provide insights into the reasons behind the severed connection.

Twitter offers its users a variety of features to manage their Twitter experience. One of the generally preferred tools is blocking Twitter users.

Twitter users can use blocking to prevent certain accounts from getting in touch with them, accessing their Tweets, or following them. As you can block specific accounts that you don't want to be visible, other people can block you, too.

Once they block you on Twitter, you can't see their tweets, follow their accounts or get in touch. Also, you won't be able to see their tweets in your search results.

If a person blocks your account on Twitter, you won't receive any notification about this action. This is why many people wonder if there is a way to find out who blocked you on Twitter.

Once someone blocks you on Twitter, you are not able to communicate with them on Twitter. But still, there are a couple of ways you can try to get unblocked on Twitter.

Method #1: Try to communicate through a mutual Twitter friend

Even though Twitter doesn't allow you to communicate with the accounts blocking you on Twitter, you can try to get in touch with the person via a mutual friend.

If you have common friends who can bring peace to your conflict, they can get in touch with the person for you. You can ask for an explanation for the blocking action, try to find a middle ground, or explain the situation from your perspective.

In a nutshell, communication is the key to getting unblocked on Twitter.

Method #2: Get in touch with the person via other channels

Or, you can simply get in touch with them via email or telephone. But keep in mind that it would be disturbing if you are too insistent.

Blocking someone on Twitter is as simple as clicking a button. It does not need a justification or explanation. The Twitter user who has been blocked doesn't receive any notification from Twitter about your blocking.

If you suspect that you are the one who has been blocked by someone else, you can easily see who blocked you on Twitter by visiting their profile page.

But it is not simple to get unblocked on Twitter as Twitter doesn't allow you to communicate with that person on Twitter. What you can do to get unblocked on Twitter is only to get in touch with the person outside of Twitter.
