Elon Musk intends to unblock the X platform

Elon Musk said that users of the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, will not be able to block people from seeing their posts or leaving comments.

The controversial decision drew criticism from some users, who said the ban feature allows them to remove those who "promote anger and hate".

Elon Musk takes a new action on the X platform

The social media platform's owner said the feature "doesn't make sense", adding that it would only be possible to prevent people from sending direct messages.

After making this change to the app, users will now only be able to mute individuals, allowing someone to remove another account's posts from their timeline, without unfollowing or blocking them, and the user's posts remain visible to the blocked account.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey suggested he agreed to remove the block option, saying, "100%, I agreed to just mute."

Currently, X's help center says that blocked accounts can't follow you or view your Tweets when you're logged in unless you report or mention you in your Tweets, and they can't search for your Tweets or send you Direct Messages.

Banned accounts also can't view your followers and lists, likes or following lists when you're logged in, tag you in a photo, add your account to their lists, or view a Moment you've created.

The removal of the blocking feature raises criticism among X platform users

The change alarmed many X users, and most of the opponents seemed to be trans and pro-Jewish opponents, who agreed that "failing to block anti-Semitic comments and Holocaust denials shown to commemorate the victims would be damaging to their memory," opponents said. We chose to ban users who promote disapproval and hate," he said, noting the blocking function is a "practical measure."

Implications of unblocking platform X

It is reported that removing this feature may also lead to a violation of the terms and conditions of stores such as the Apple App Store and Google Play, because the inability to filter out harassment or bullying will mean that X is no longer downloadable from online application stores.
