Twitter makes it easier to block abusers

Twitter has already taken a few steps to curb harassment, but what about the basic act of blocking someone? That's getting easier, too. The social network is introducing a simpler blocking experience that takes some of the headaches out of the process: just go to the offending tweet, choose Block from the "..." button and that person vanishes from your timeline. It's not going to get rid of systematic abuse (such as people who create dummy accounts or put you on targeted lists), but it will help you get back to your regular tweeting a little bit sooner.
