You forgot one. Report previously banned users. I'm aware of quite a few women who had done the blocking and muting and reporting, only for their abuser to come back with a new account which takes 6 months to shut down

when creating these, did you have the voice of someone who is actively a part of the group you are trying to protect (with concerns) in those convos? i.e. when i block accounts, they make new ones. how does any of this help? I'm just one voice of many -- there are so many more

filters on, muted and blocked -- this is only a surface level (and temporary)

what’s the point of blocking when ppl can literally just make new accs and continue the harassment?

Bring back the option to import/export Blocked lists. That will save a lot of Twitter users a lot of time and effort, and will be the most effective tool.

Great idea in a right direction 💪

Except you keep punishing trans women by banning them when they receive hate…and ignore all the requests for safer spaces by women across the board. This isn’t allyship, it’s expecting the victims to be your resource for change and that’s kind of messed up.
