Twitter usability fail

Someone please tell me why Twitter thought it was a good idea to put the ‘Accept’ button right on top of the ‘Block username’ link on their web interface?

It’s caught me out on more than one occasion and to this day I still haven’t figured out how to ‘unblock’ a user. 

Dear Twitter, please fix! In fact, I’ll do the work & give it to you for free, just stick this line into your CSS, you don’t even have to touch your HTML as it’s already being referenced!!!


The update:

#follow-requests .follow-request .right-box .block-link { padding:12px;}
#follow-requests .follow-request .right-box .block-link:link, #follow-requests .follow-request .right-box .block-link:active, #follow-requests .follow-request .right-box .block-link:visited { color:red; text-decoration:none;}
#follow-requests .follow-request .right-box .block-link:hover { color:red; text-decoration:underline;}

  1. It’s pretty annoying – I’ve done it a couple of times too. Hopefully they fix it at some stage.

    Re: blocking/unblocking people – you can do that on each person’s profile page. On the bottom of the right-hand nav pane, there will be a grey “unblock” link (it’s “block” if you haven’t blocked that person).
