If you're a regular Tweeter you'll know that you can block another user and prevent them from following you and seeing your profile picture.
This was the first line of defence for people who were being stalked, abused or attacked by trolls.
Last week, Twitter decided this wasn't a good idea, so they decided to allow blocked users to see tweets and interact with accounts that had blocked them.
After screams of 'What's the point of blocking then?' died down, Twitter realised they'd made a massive mistake and reversed the changes. Less than 24 hours after they were introduced.
We're reverting the changes to block functionality. https://t.co/H3W3V27rKN— Twitter (@twitter) December 13, 2013
But instead of damaging Twitter's reputation, the social network site has been praised for listening to its users and responding in a positive way.
But others still don't think Twitter is doing enough to protect our online safety...
I rather suspect that Twitter can never allow true blocking because they fear people would block *ads*. https://t.co/j9X9S02eHa— Jason Pontin (@jason_pontin) December 13, 2013
What do you think? Should there be an 'ignore' or 'mute' button on Twitter so we can REALLY block aggressive users?
