Someone blocked my account

Twitter gives users a variety of tools to control their experience, including blocking. Blocking helps users in restricting specific accounts from contacting them, seeing their Tweets, and following them. If you have been blocked by another user on Twitter, you can still block other accounts (including any that have blocked you).

If you visit the profile of an account that has blocked your account, you will see a message alerting you of the block. Additionally, you will not be able to see that user’s Tweets, Moments, or other account information.

You can still report an account that has blocked you.

Visit the profile of the account you’d like to report:

  1. Click or tap on the gear icon  (on web or Twitter for iOS), or tap on the overflow icon  (Twitter for Android).
  2. Click or tap Report.
  3. Next, we’ll ask you to provide additional information about the issue you’re reporting.

For more details about blocking, including information about how blocking limits interactions between accounts, read this article.
