Can Someone See Who Reported Them On Twitter?

Have you ever been reported, blocked or muted by a user? And are you wondering if you can see who reported them?

Twitter, a social media platform and microblogging service, is used to send and read short 140-character messages called tweets. People can share tweets with the entire world or limit access to particular users.

Twitter also has a feature to report someone for breaking the rules like harassing, spamming and more. And the question is are Twitter reports anonymous? Read on..

Can Someone See Who Reported Them On Twitter?

No, you can’t see who reported you on Twitter.

This is because the reporting system is designed to protect your privacy. Twitter don’t want people to be able to retaliate against other users by knowing who reported them and being able to report them back. The company’s privacy policy states that it does not disclose user information publicly without consent or unless required by law. However, the privacy policy also states that “the manner in which we protect your information is sensitive, so your trust in us is important.” Generally speaking, Twitter is not allowed to disclose who reported a user for harassment, abuse or other violations of the Terms of Service (ToS). If a court order requires the company to reveal this information then it will be disclosed only by naming individual accounts rather than by revealing their names directly due to confidentiality issues.

How Do You Report Someone On Twitter?

Once you find a tweet that you want to report, it’s time to share your thoughts with Twitter. To do so, simply click on the “…” button in the top right corner of their tweet. This will bring up a menu with several options including: “Retweet,” “Quote Tweet” and “Report Tweet.” Selecting “Report Tweet” will bring up an additional drop down menu where you can choose from four reasons for reporting someone’s tweets:

  • Spam
  • Abuse or Harassment
  • Self-Harm or Suicide Promotion
  • Impersonation


The bottom line, though, is that there is no way to get a full picture of whom has reported who on Twitter. While users can see how many reports they’ve had against them, there’s no way to find a list of people you’ve reported or who you’ve been reported by. This information is an important thing to have and see.
