Twitter: Block list and Who I block on Twitter

Scott Pape @ScottPape of Barefoot.com.auOpens in a new tab. accidentally blocked a bunch of followers and was trying to work out who he had blockedOpens in a new tab.. “It appears that one of my guys has accidently blocked most of my followers by using a 3rd party app. I’m a technophobe – can anyone help?” Now I’ve blocked thousands of spammers and around 5 trolls so I thought it would be cool to find a list somewhere.

Which is where I ran into trouble.

TwitBlock block list on twitter

Twitblock.orgOpens in a new tab. has a list – you click on “blocking 1234” and it should give you a list. Doesn’t work for me – possibly because I have 20k+ of followers or am blocking so many spammers? Let me know if it works for you.

untweeps who do you block on Twitter?

UnTweeps Opens in a new tab.came back “0 found” which was less than helpful. Again it could be the numbers my account connects to, so your mileage may vary.

I also tried http://www.topify.com/whoiblock/ but it looked a bit dodgy. I changed my password when it looked  like it wouldn’t work. Ditto http://twitterunblock.net84.net/  YMMV.

So, all in all very unsatisfactory.  Do YOU have a better block list tool? Who is blocking you/you are blocking? Surely the API is still working – does anyone have news that it has been turned off?

  3. We’ve rebuilt TwitBlock from scratch since the date of this post.
    Please let us know if the block list tool is still broken for you.

    It could be problematic that you have so many blocks. The Twitter API, as wonderful as it is for many things, has some problems with the [lower priority] blocking functions. For example, block lists are supposed to ‘page’ like follower lists do – except they don’t. I reported this over a year ago, and it is still broken. It also seems to retain blocked users that have long-since been suspended/removed. Ho hum.

  4. I have build a tool around the blocks/blocking API


    A four-figure blocking count will produce quite a large data response, but your blocking list should come through with some patience.

    Full info for each blocked user is shown and there is an option to unblock any of these if you feel you have blocked them in error or want to wipe the slate clean.
