Twitter's an awesome resource and loads of fun. For us nerds, it's a great place to quickly get your news headlines and rapid-fire social commentary. There are also some pretty hilarious and fun people to follow on the site. (*cough cough*). But, like everything good and awesome, the site also has it's fair share of the 'not awesome'.

Hopefully you don't come across toxic people too much in your general interneting, but when you happen upon some not-so-nice folks, it's always good to know that the technology exists for you to block them. Out of sight, out of your feed, and out of your mind. Good riddance. But, for a few hours yesterday, Twitter made a change to its blocking policy that changed all that.
