Elon Musk to remove block feature on X

Elon Musk states that users on X, the social media network formerly known as Twitter, will no longer be able to block other accounts.

The block button allowed users to prevent others from seeing or responding to any of their content.

Direct messages, also known as DMs, should continue to be blocked so that users may choose who can contact them privately.

“Block is going to be deleted as a ‘feature’, except for DMs,” said Musk in a post to X on Friday, August 18 “It makes no sense.”

As a substitute for blocking, Musk said in a subsequent post, users will be able to use the mute button. Muting an account prevents that user’s posts from appearing in one’s timeline but it’s still possible to see them by clicking on links, and the muted user can still view the content of the user who muted them.

Some people took to X to criticize the announcement. See reactions below.
