[Website issue] Bug: "account is protected" error msg shown to blocked user for blocker's public timeline


Sorry, this is a website issue but there seems to be no channel where I can report a website bug.

I was blocked by someone a year or more ago. Recently however, I am unable to see that user’s timeline when logged in; I am shown this message:

@[username]'s account is protected. Only confirmed followers have access to @[username]'s Tweets and complete profile.
Click the “Follow” button to send a follow request.


  • This is a public, not protected, account.
  • If I log out I can see their timeline.
