GET blocks/list

Please note

We recently released blocks lookup, a Twitter API v2 endpoint that has similar functionality to this one. The new version is currently in development and serves adequate access for the majority of developers on our platform. While elevated levels of access are coming soon, developers in need of higher levels of access should continue to use this endpoint along with the Twitter API v2 version.

GET blocks/list

Returns a collection of user objects that the authenticating user is blocking.

Important This method is cursored, meaning your app must make multiple requests in order to receive all blocks correctly. See Using cursors to navigate collections for more details on how cursoring works.

Name Required Description Default Value Example
include_entities optional The entities node will not be included when set to false . false
skip_status optional When set to either true , t or 1 statuses will not be included in the returned user objects.
cursor semi-optional

Causes the list of blocked users to be broken into pages of no more than 5000 IDs at a time. The number of IDs returned is not guaranteed to be 5000 as suspended users are filtered out after connections are queried. If no cursor is provided, a value of -1 will be assumed, which is the first "page."

The response from the API will include a previous_cursor and next_cursor to allow paging back and forth. See Using cursors to navigate collections for more information.
