Twitter Blocking Glitch?

Post image for Twitter Blocking Glitch?

As I was playing around on Twitter tonight instead of sleeping (long story & it starts in Israel, no seriously) I saw my buddy Olivier mention that Rand Fishkin had blocked him.

Now, Olivier was being a bit belligerent with Rand sure, but I’ve never known Rand to be thin skinned and trust me, I’ve tested that theory time & time again. 😀

So I jumped over to Rand’s twitter page only to see this somewhat shocking image you see above.

Now that’s odd, I thought. I can’t believe Rand would really lock his Tweets down. I mean attention whores like us want anyone and everyone hearing what we have to say.

Naturally, I clicked the send request button.

After clicking I’m then informed that Rand has blocked me (a possibility I suppose) but I’m allowed to see the stream that had just been labeled private.

So um.. which is it Twitter… did Rand make his Twitter stream private, or did he block me?
