Getting blocked on Twitter just got more embarrassing

I came across something in my Facebook newsfeed today about how now it’s super obvious when someone on Twitter blocks you. On the one hand, if you’re blocking someone, you probably don’t care if they know you’re blocking them. And, if your tweets aren’t private to begin with, what’s the point in blocking anyone? I guess the real question is: do you really have any chance of controlling privacy in a medium which is meant to be public?

Some people have private Tweets, but it’s super easy to RT private tweets and broadcast them to the whole world, while attributing that message to the original Tweeter. So what’s the point in blocking anyone or trying to control who sees your tweets? If you’re saying something that can’t be shared publicly, it’s probably better to tweet nothing at all…
