The takeover was initiated in April 2023. Although the Twitter shareholders were reluctant at first, they eventually gave in on a $44 billion deal. In July, Musk suddenly backed out of the deal, claiming that Twitter had violated their contract by not giving correct information about spambot accounts.

The then-Twitter CEO tried to appeal to Musk by publishing data and documents, and Musk made fun of them all over Twitter. Niceties thus concluded, Twitter then sued Musk over breach of contract. They stated Musk was given all the requested information, and this is him getting cold feet.

The trial was set for the last week of October, but before it could start, Musk had another change of heart, and he finally acquired Twitter on October 27th. Talk about a rollercoaster of a ride! And what comes next is even crazier.

Upon acquisition, Elon proceeds to fire most of the Board of Directors, including the CEO and CFO. He also fired half the workforce and informed the rest of the employees they must prepare for “rigorous, hardcore work.”

Twitter is also shaken by new reforms, what with the paid subscription for blue ticks and the unnecessary updates which did more harm than good. Although Musk’s ideas are well-intentioned, the execution is amateurish, and the Tesla CEO is also not that good at accepting constructive criticism.

Anyhow, stay tuned with us to know what’s new on this crazy but loveable platform. Today’s blog will discuss how you can delete your retweet of a tweet posted by someone who has since blocked you on Twitter.

How to Delete My Retweet of Tweet from Someone Who Blocked You?

Navigating Twitter is not an easy feat, especially with all these new features and changes brought about by the new CEO, Elon Musk. So, it’s quite understandable that you thought it best to find your answers on Google instead of trying to find them on your own.

How do you delete your retweet of a tweet from someone who has blocked you? The answer is no; you simply can’t. If someone has blocked you, all the relations between the both of you will disappear, including your chats.

Except for the tweets where they’ve mentioned you, everything will go away. So, any retweets on your profile featuring their tweet will also disappear.

Twitter is a large social media platform, and although it has its flaws, there are a few features that just make sense. And it doesn’t make sense for someone who has blocked you to be still on your profile if they’re not mentioned on the retweet.

If others can still see that retweet, it’s a loophole or glitch on Twitter. We understand it can be problematic and unwanted to have it on your profile. But since they’ve blocked you, you cannot access that retweet anymore.

Well, the only thing you can do in such a situation is to contact a team at Twitter for some help. They’re there to help you, of course.

Now that’s out of the way, let us educate you on how to tell when someone blocks you on Twitter. It never gets easier when you find out someone has blocked you, but the key here is not to take it personally.

If someone blocks you when you know for sure that you haven’t done anything wrong, then they’re the troubled ones. Maybe they’re insecure, and you accidentally got under their skin. Or maybe, they thought that instead of having a rational discussion, it’s much easier to block you and bottle it down.

Either way, it’s clearly something they’re struggling with; it has nothing to do with you.

How to know when someone has blocked you on Twitter?

If you consider yourself to be an avid social media user, you must be aware of how most social media platforms try to hide the fact that you’ve been blocked. This is generally done to protect the blockers’ privacy since blocking can often be interpreted as quite an aggressive gesture.

However, for some reason, Twitter didn’t feel the need for such excessive measures. If you wish to find out whether or not someone has blocked you, all you need to do is go to their account.

If you have indeed been blocked, all you’ll see is a message saying [@username] blocked you. Under that will be You are blocked from following [@username] and following [@username] ’s tweets.

Another sign you might notice first is that all your DMs with them will disappear out of the blue.

In the end

Twitter is one of the best ways to entertain yourself when you’re feeling bored or are stuck in a grocery line. However, if you’re a regular user, you must also know it’s a highly controversial and problematic platform.

For example, let’s say you tweet a… somewhat unpopular opinion, and the hate comments start pouring in. What hurts the most is that you thought they were your friends and also retweeted some of their tweets.

So, after someone has blocked you, can you delete the tweet of theirs that you’ve retweeted? The answer is no; you can’t. This is because once someone has blocked you, all their tweets disappear, and your retweet will, too.

If you can still see the retweet, it’s most likely a loophole or a glitch on Twitter’s part; reach out to a support team for help. Lastly, we’ve discussed how to know when you’ve been blocked on Twitter. If you feel like we’ve missed someone, don’t hesitate to tell us in the comments!
