You can now soft block annoying people on Twitter without causing offense with a new feature.
A softly blocked person will no longer see your Tweets in their feed and you won’t see theirs but you’re not forbidden from them. Whereas a hard block means that the person is forbidden from seeing your Tweets even if they go to your landing page and you are forbidden from theirs. A hard blocked person cannot message you but a soft blocked person still can.
Softly blocked people will not get notices of your passive-aggressive action.
