Read Tweets When You Are Blocked

There is no such feature in Twitter that will let you read tweets of that accounts that have blocked you. However, you can use some tricks to read such tweets.

Create Another Account

This can be a workaround when someone has blocked you from viewing their tweets. You can create a new account and login into the same browser by the “Add an existing account” option. Then you can easily switch accounts and then search for that account that has been blocked and voila! you can read their all tweets.

Note:  You will not be able to read someone’s tweets if he/she has made their account private which means only followers can see them. 

Read Tweets in Incognito Window

This is another temporary solution to read tweets of those accounts that have blocked you. For this, all you need to do is copy a particular tweet’s URL or that person’s Twitter username and open it in the incognito tab.

Bonus: Protect Your Tweets

As mentioned above, you can read tweets of those accounts that have blocked you from a new account, but if you do not want this to happen to you, i.e. a blocked person seeing your tweets from another account, you can protect your tweets. Here’s how:

1. Go to Twitter and log in to your account.

2. Go to Settings and Privacy by clicking on More at the left panel.

3. Now, click on “Privacy and safety”.

4. Click “Audience and tagging” on the next page, under “Your Twitter Activity”.

5. Now, on the next page, you can check the box next to “Protect your Tweets”.

That’s it. When you select this feature, your Tweets and other account info will only be visible to those people who follow you.
