Twitter Is Testing New “Soft Block” Feature

Twitter is testing a new feature that will allow users to remove their followers without blocking them.

The social media platform said this would make it easier for users to curate their own follower’s lists.

Removing a follower means your tweets will no longer show up in their feed, and they will stop receiving notifications when you post something.

This should go some way to reducing instances of harassment, trolling, and online abuse on the platform.

The feature is currently only available to select users who access Twitter through the web.

To remove a follower, users can go to their profile, select “Followers”, choose the three-dot icon to the right of the follower’s name, and select “Remove this follower”.

The “soft block” was the second feature test Twitter launched on Tuesday, following the arrival of edge-to-edge Tweets on the iOS app.

This feature makes media like photos, GIFs, and videos span the width of the app.
