X, previously known as Twitter, is reportedly considering the removal of a significant feature from its platform.
Elon Musk, the owner of X, shared a message on the platform that indicated users might soon lose the ability to block other accounts.
Elon Musk engaged with an X user’s query about the distinction between blocking and muting someone on the platform.
In response, Musk expressed his view that the block feature doesn’t have a practical purpose, while suggesting a more effective enhancement to the mute function.
Interestingly, this perspective garnered support from Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s former founder, who affirmed the idea of focusing on the “mute only” aspect.
Musk further clarified his stance in subsequent posts, specifying that while the block feature might be removed, users would still retain the ability to block other accounts from direct messaging them.
The potential removal of the block feature raises questions about the status of currently blocked accounts and whether they will automatically be unblocked in the event of this change.
This aspect remains uncertain at this time.
