Elon Musk has announced that the block feature on X, formerly known as Twitter, will soon be removed, leaving users unable to add others to their block list. Musk conveyed this decision through a comment on the platform, stating that the feature"makes no sense."
Musk's disdain for the block feature has been evident in his past statements. He previously proposed the removal of blocking in favor of a more robust mute option and criticized campaigns against users who subscribe to Twitter Blue.
However, the potential elimination of the block feature raises concerns about user safety and privacy, as blocking serves as a crucial tool to prevent unwanted interactions and harassment. Blocking restricts users from interacting with, viewing, and following an account, offering a higher level of control over one's online interactions.
