Should blocked users be able to @ the person blocking them?

#1

Alice is blocking Bob.

Bob cannot see Alice’s Tweets.

Bob can still send @ replies to Alice.

Alice won’t see the replies unless she specifically searches for them - or is alerted to them because a mutual acquaintance @ replies to both Alice and Bob.

Should our clients block Bob from sending a Tweet containing an @ reply to Alice?
Should the Twitter API block these messages from being sent?

As a reference for why this is a problem - Why can a blocked user tweet at me?

Excellent questions, I’ll see what I can learn and share on these.
