SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Twitter got an earful from its users this week after making some changes to its block feature. Users were not happy, became vocal and prevailed in getting a reversal on the company’s decision.
Under the original system, users could prevent people who were harassing them from following them and interacting with their tweets.
A new system was rolled out Thursday morning, which allowed a blocked user to view the person’s tweets and tweet at the person.
Twitter caved under the heavy criticism before the end of the day. I think they got a dose of their own medicine. The problem with Twitter is, it’s a great platform to complain about a lot of companies. In this case, people tweeted complaining about the changes.
