Twitter Users Can Now Remove Unwanted Followers

Twitter has officially added a new feature that allows users to remove followers without blocking them, as the platform works to reduce abuse and harassment.

Twitter Support first made mention of this feature—referred to as a “soft block”— when it initially was tested in early September. According to Twitter, the purpose of the soft block is to allow users to curate their own followers list and determine who they want to interact with.

Though Twitter continues to make anti-harassment a much bigger priority, the platform has yet to implement other features users have been asking for, such as an Edit button.

The company instead has preferred to add adjacent features, such as the Undo Send button.
