In today’s “how are people this dumb” thread I’d like to address the vague legal threats that have been popping up in my mentions regarding “being on a list” and “GDPR”. #repealshield @repeal_shield ➡️
Yes love, you are on a list. It’s called a block list. It’s one of twitters core functionalities. Wow, look here I can even see and manage my own block list from within the app! 🤓 Now, you’re hardly complaining about someone using a choice to block ya are ya? ➡️
“I don’t care who you block you can’t share your block list like that” Au contraire my ignorant friend, that is also a functionality of Twitter- the ability to export and import block lists. help.twitter.com/en/using-twitt… ➡️
