Twitter’s New Feature of Removing Followers without Blocking Them Is Now Being Tested

Last Updated on September 14, 2021 by Josh

Twitter revealed that it is testing a web feature that allows users to remove followers without blocking them. Some Twitter users who have been given access to this test can now remove a follower by going to their profile and clicking on “View Followers.” Then, adjacent to the follow button, users can click the three-dot icon and choose “remove this follower” from the drop-down menu. However, this feature is not available to all users at the moment.

Key takeaways:

  • Users could previously bypass this “soft block” by blocking and then unblocking a person, which removes them from your list of followers.
  • You can only remove followers from your follower list in the current test.
  • The platform is continuing to invest in user experience upgrades that are focused on online security.
