Blocking is the best option when a user feels the need to take the most restrictive measures against someone on social media.

Twitter-like other social media networks, have a blocking feature that allows users to protect themselves from specific behavior on the network.

The fact that someone has blocked you on a social media platform is an unpleasant surprise, and it often leaves us wondering who took such an action.

Therefore in this how-to, we will discuss how users can see which Twitter profiles have blocked them and the possible reasons for it.

Can you see who blocked you on Twitter

Yes, users can see who blocked them on Twitter.

Unlike other social media platforms, Twitter clearly indicates when users have been blocked by another user.

The platform does not send any notifications to users who have been blocked but shows a message that says @{Account user name} blocked you once users open the account that has blocked them.

Since Twitter is an online space where many diverse opinions are being shared daily, it’s not odd to get blocked by more than one account.

And to be honest, we all want to know which and how many accounts have blocked us.

Users can manually see the list of accounts that have blocked you on Twitter can be seen, but to see the complete list of people and an exact number of accounts that have blocked you, you'll need a third-party app.
