Blocked? Twitter now allows you to send a last message with request to unblock

Twitter recently released updates for both its mobile and desktop versions, and for the most part, the users were unhappy. They didn’t hold back from expressing their disquiet:

They were most annoyed with the tweaking of  Twitter reply features where the user name doesn’t show up in the replies anymore. This has made things very confusing for most users.

The users though missed one of the coolest features which Twitter has introduced which allows you to send one message to someone who has blocked you, so that you can convince them to unblock.

The blocking feature on Twitter is one of their most controversial ones as getting blocked by someone not just doesn’t allow you to reply to them, it doesn’t even allow you to view their tweets.

Many a times people might get blocked from celebrities or public figures for being sarcastic or even a bit of an a**hole, but once blocked, one has to resort to asking other people to request the blocker to unblock you.

This new feature though allows you to write a 140 character reply to convince someone to unblock you. For it to be most effective, one might need to apologise profusely.

So how to use this feature?

See the ”learn more” option in the picture above? Just click that and you will be directed to twitter’s webpage where you will see a ”send message to @username” option.

Write the message in the box and then click ‘send’. You though won’t be notified if and when the person unblocks you. You just have to keep checking.

This exercise by twitter might help it curry some favour of Twitter users who have time and again criticised Twitter India for suspending accounts of users chiefly belonging to the right-wing ideology or those who were critical of the Aam Aadmi Party.

PS: Skeptical about this so called new feature of Twitter? Well you should be because this report was a part of our April Fool prank. No Twitter isn’t nice enough to do something like this and if they did, most people might use it to abuse people one last time.
